Husband And Wife Of Bipolar Sufferers, How About Their Offspring?
Good afternoon, I was diagnosed with mixed episodes of bipolar a few months ago, before I was diagnosed with ptsd and anxiety for less than a year ago my partner was diagnosed with psychotic depression for a long time and today my partner was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. How is the suggestion? So what if I have children he will experience the same thing?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, some types of mental disorders are hereditary and can be inherited in children, including bipolar disorder. A child who has a direct family suffering from bipolar disorder has a higher risk for suffering from bipolar disorder as well. But you need to emphasize that children only have a higher risk, this does not mean your child will definitely experience bipolar disorder as well. Most people who have immediate families who suffer from bipolar disorder do not experience bipolar disorder.
Basically, bipolar disorder is a disorder that can be controlled with psychotherapy and medication. It is recommended that you and your partner continue to exercise psychiatric control routinely to control the symptoms of you and your partner, and there is no need to worry too much about your children's future.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
