Thanks for sharing.
Good thing she was 13, for she was mature and could understand what was going on better than a young child. You are blessed to have your daughter. No doubt you were a wonderful mom to her. Better to have misgivings and realize you are imperfect, than to insist that those mistakes were the child’s fault. Abusers do not take responsibility for their behavior. They do not seek help.

Thanks for reposting this. What a well-written description of the bipolar mom’s dilemma! I feel fortunate that my daughter was already 13 when I had my first manic episode. Now she’s an adult and tells me I was a wonderful mom. God, did I need to hear that! I has many misgivings.
