Bipolar Disorder And 8 Months Pregnant

2 Replies
Hope - May 12

I have bipolar disorder and I’m due next month. I had to go through all the pain of going through my whole entire pregnancy by myself. My friends and family are in Asia and I’m alone in the US. It has been the longest 8 months in my life, and I have never felt so depressed in my life. I had been with the father of the baby during my high school life.I stopped medication because i felt better having him in my life. I even gave up my future for a great university in Australia just so I could be with him. Now that I’m pregnant, he left me with my pregnancy and I’ve never felt so alone in my life. I force myself to devote my lifestyle to this baby and it’s not good because I can only pretend that I want the baby for so long. I’m scared that my baby will grow up in a broken home. I’m scared that I will be even more depressed after I have the baby. I’m scared for so much, and I can’t handle myself anymore. Adoption is definitely not an option for my family. I have been struggling with bipolar disorder and I hope that I will be able to handle a baby. I am currently seeing a doctor, but I need other advice other than someone coming from a medical perspective. Please help.
