My 27 year old daughter is bipolar. She has a 2 year old son and they both live with me. I never know what kind of mood she'll be in so I have to tread lightly. My problem is I don't feel I have to walk on eggshells in my own home. She also has little patients with her son. To me ,he's a typical 2 year old but she keeps saying he has ocd and other mental issues. I think she should keep those kind of comments to herself and not say things like that in front of him. When he does something wrong which is often, afterall he is 2, she flies off the handle and screams at the top of her lungs at him. I sware he's going to have hearing problems because of it! I'm tire of her being around all the time and I resent being subjected to her tyrades. I'm at my wits end! She's on meds but says she gets distracted by the baby and forgets. If I ask her if she took them she gets defensive. I don't know how much more I can take. Any advice will be grealy appriated!!!!!
