Manic Episodes – One of the mood episodes that compose depression and crazy. A state that is flamboyant, active, hyper, or tense. This can cause extreme fits of laughter, uncontrollable movement, fidgeting, and even severe rage that can result in harsh language and hurt feelings to those who do not realize what is going through the mind of the person suffering from depression and crazy.

Is your helping encouraging? All of your “helping” should encourage your adult child to do better and become more independent. It shouldn’t be so controlling that it takes away the incentive for your adult child to try or that it sends the message that he/she is incapable of handling his/her own life. Helping someone to help themselves is the goal. All of us learn best when we are in control of our choices and directly experience the consequences of them.
