    Feeling pain, awareness and walking are all a good thing, cracked ribs heal on their own. Sounds like he's turned the corner if they've weaned off the meds so now it's a matter of stablizing him on this psych meds and building his strength and mobility back up. They may talk to you about moving him to a "skilled nursing facility" to do this, make sure his psychiatrist is fully in loop if they do because not all nursing facilities are equipped for both the physical rehab and the bipolar aspects. Sleep and don't discount the power of naps.

    Absolutely right, on every single point. You really know this experience, Martha, and while it's been so good for me, it pains me to think of how you gained that experience.

    When I was 23 I dated a fantastically brilliant and talented guy who was bipolar and I was working in a Psychiatry Dept. at a major teaching hospital at the same time - it was useful.

    Alas the other stuff, my fabulously brilliant and gifted husband died from cancer over six years ago so I became way more familiar with the ins and outs of hospitals, emergencies rooms, medical treatments, aftercare, etc. than I ever wanted to know. I've ridden the roller coaster until it finally stopped.
