Welcome! I'm sorry to hear you are having such a difficult time with your DD :smileyindifferent:

I found this for you, regarding bi-polar diagnosis in children:

http://bipolar.about.com/cs/kids_diag/a/red_flags4.htm

It states "A study conducted by the Papoloses indicated that more than 80% of children diagnosed with bipolar disorder come from families with a history of mood disorders and/or alcoholism on both sides of the family."

I'm not sure but I know that can be tough to deal with.
