Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Thank you for this answer. However we as a family think that she is being held unnecassarily. She has no depressive states and is just very angry at being held in this hospital, mainly because her mother cannot deal with her going off and also being angry with her. We are not convinced that she has bipolar and more concerned that she is so stressed because this Glandular Fever is also preventing her from being selected to play in the Olympic Women's Ice Hockey team, the selection is being held in Italy this weekend and she is beside herself with the frustration . She has worked so hard to be in the British team and is the youngest player.
Can you give me any way in which we can dispute this decision to hold her?
Thank you. Yes I do understand your position. I was hoping that a connection with bipolar and GF would demonstrate that that was the problem. I think it is mainly the stress that is so frustrating for her. She is such a gutsy girl and goes full out when playing ice hockey - a little demon! This has set her back like nothing else.
Thank you for your good wishes on her recovery.
