I have a 24 year old son who suffers from bipolar disorder and also has Asperger's. The disease had dominated our home and eclipsed much of what we do as a family. My son cannot hold down a job, nor succeed in school due to his lack of personal discipline. The disease has destroyed us financially and mentally. But, every day is a new day and we strive for normalcy and have learn to take things one day at a time.
