My Dad went to an institution a few days ago. He has bipolar disorder a.k.a manic depresion. these episodes usualy last a few weeks. My family lives paycheck to paycheck and we still need government support ontop of that. We just got a car which Mom needs to get to and from dialysis. Dad cant work now and we will have to chrge a lot of things on credit. We wont loose the car though, which I am greatful for because it is Moms lifeline. Our insurance wont pay for medical transportation. Not having Dad home is hard on both Mom and I, but we both know that he is whare he has to be to get better. Please pray that Dad gets better soon. God bless.
Original Prayer Request (posted 2 Years Ago): I need prayers for my father. Well my whole family, but mostly my father now. I am 17 years old in my junior year of high school. My father has bipolar disorder, aka manic depresive. He has manic episodes every now and then. sometimes he has to go to an institution. He is showing signs of going manic again, and at the worst posible tine. He is staring off into space, forgeting things he usualy remembers, becoming obsesed with his religion (in an unhealthy way), and Mom and I practicaly have to force him to eat or drink anything. Those are all the warning signs for him. We have recently aquired a new suv, which is Moms only transportation to dialisys. We live paycheck to paycheck, and that is not enough, we also get government support. If Dad cant work, we have to surrender the car. Without the car, Mom cant get to dialisys. If Mom cant get dialisys then shes dead. Our insurance wont cover transportation. Our family is in no position niether emotionaly nor financialy to go through another manic episode. Please pray for all of us. God bless.
