My sister is a raging anorexic and I have no earthling about what to do about it.?
She's been to therapy, she's been to the hospital, she 's tried meditating, she is on a sleeping pill, she's been prescribed an antidepressant, and she is only twelve years years and very small for her age. She seemed to be getting better for a while but now she is cutting her meal size in half, not following her food plan or minimum amount of calories ingested, she is becoming an increasingly obsessive and avid calorie counter, and her face is starting to get that sunken, sickly look that it used to have back when she was around twenty five pounds underweight. She sneaks in runs whenever she can, climbing out windows. She seems to have an anger disorder too as she throws food every chance she gets. She knows exactly how many calories she consumes daily, thus knowing exactly how she can lose weight. She balances in her running, wich she does at the crack of dawn every morning. Her moods are constantly changing, making it as if we are walking on eggshells around her. My parents are looking into a residential treatment program for her. what can I DO?

What are the chances my child will have bipolar disorder?
Okay, I am in a wonderful relationship and I am wondering the chances that, if I had a child with my boyfriend, our child would have bipolar disorder. Here are my reasons for wondering:
-I have severe early-onset bipolar disorder (I was diagnosed when I was in first grade, I am now almost finished with highschool)
-my mother and her older sister both have mild to moderate adult bipolar disorder
-my grandfather (my mother's father) has had on and of depression his whole life
-my great-grandmother (my mother's grandmother, my grandfather's mother) killed herself, and they think she may have also had bipolar disorder
-my biological father has an anger disorder (as does his mother and his two brothers)
Now, just to clarify, I'm not planning to have a kid anytime soon. I'm just wondering, hypothetically. Also, my boyfriend does not have any mental illness or emotional problems. Also, even if the chances are still high, I'd still want kids.
