    I was chatting with my older DS on FaceBook just now. He is Bi-Polar and isn't on medication (no insurance). He has lost his job, found out his dad has cancer and it doesn't look good, and the strain has caused him to blow up at his girlfriend. They have been on a "break" since then. I have spoken to her, but she isn't sure she can handle him.

    Yesterday was the birthday of DS's son. The state took the boy from DS's wife while he was in Army boot camp. He went AWOL to try to get him and wound up getting discharged over the whole thing. State took custody of the boy anyway and let the foster parents adopt him. Turns out DS wasn't the natural father, his wife was cheating. But the boy is still his son in his heart. He sort of lost it today. Just too much for him to deal with and no medication to help him. He called up the girlfriend and told her off.

    The reason for my prayer request. On FaceBook he told me he tried to OD last week. And that right now he wants to slit his wrist. I don't know where he is at and I don't have a phone number on him. Poof, he was offline.

    I begged him not, to think of me and his little brother. Please everyone, pray! Send angels to blanket him. Comfort him. Ask the Lord to cradle him. I am afraid he told her off as a way to break any earthly ties. I don't know what to do!!!!

    He messaged me through FaceBook. His internet crashed last night. He called someone who came and picked him up. So for now he is safe. This time of year was rough last year. I wish I was working and could afford to help him a little. As it is, there isn't enough money in our own household. I hate this economy.

    Thank you all for your prayers, keep them coming. This is going to take a while to level out for him. He needs everything you can send to surround him and lift him up. He is such a good soul. I think the devil works overtime on him. Things were going so well. Then within 9 days it all crashed for him. Definately Satan's hand showing.

    I changed my profile pic, the old one was me holding Donovan before the state took him. Precious to me, but I can't see it all the time right now.

    Do drug companies help with the cost of meds anymore? (I remember commercials on tv a couple years ago - a bus that would travel around to different areas offering help to those who need it... do they still do this?) Having just spent A LOT more money for prescriptions than we can realistically afford, I understand how that pressure only adds to what looks like a mountain. God bless him!!

    We will keep him in our prayers right now and hope that a drug company would be willing to help him get the medicine he needs.

    A drug company might help with the meds cost, but he needs a current Dr. diagnosis. And he can't afford that. I'm hoping that I can find a study being done on bi-polar. If I can get him in that he has the diagnosis, possible med help and when the study is over maybe we can keep him on the med. If anyone knows of something let me know. Need it around St. Louis, Missouri.

    I just spoke to my DS. He is done with the big city. He is moving back to our town. I told him I will help in any way to find a job. He has friends that he can stay with, a really wonderful couple. They will give him support and encouragement. He also found a Dr. that is willing to see him for free. The appointment is on the 20th. Your prayers are working. Thank you all so much.

    Praying for you and your son. It sounds like he is making a wise move and I am so thankful for doctors with big hearts who will help in cases like your son's where the need is great. Praying this will be a new beginning for your son.

    Praise God!

    I am just seeing this post. I am bipolar, and I do know that there are med companies who will help him out. Thank God for the Doctor who is willing to see him for free! I suffered for years without knowing why, and my heart is breaking for your DS.

    I will keep him in my prayers.

    Got a last minute call from DS today, friend bailed on bringing him here. No gas for next week now. I went to the city and hauled his stuff and him to our town. At least he is here now, where I can "interfere". Thank you all for your prayers. He is a mess. Please keep him in there, even just a mention.

    Oh I will be praying. I'm also bipolar and unmediated due to no ins. Thankfully, I'm doing okay right now.

    Hopefully his doc can give him samples of meds or help him find some way to save on them....

    I'll be praying for you both.
