None of us mean to be harsh, but I do agree with this. None of us are here to judge you, however as we know nothing about you. So perhaps your comment is being misinterpreted.
But I will say, to be honest, that it doesn't seem as though you're qualified properly to handle this guy's care. I think there is a big difference between a general nurse and a psychiatric nurse, as psychiatric disorders tend to be in a totally different ballgame and require people with knowledge of the disorders their patients and clients are experiencing. If it's possible for you to help get a psychiatric nurse aid for him, that would be the most sensible course of action. If not, I suggest reading up about Bipolar Disorder as best you can, and get a clear idea of what is going on with him, although still, he'd be better off with an aid that has professional training with psychiatric disorders. Training in changing diapers is not enough for handling someone with Bipolar, one of the most severe mental disorders...
I apologize if my response wasn't the most helpful, but I felt I should be honest.
