Sounds like your wife is on a lot of meds. Our love is extreme; our love is unmatchable. Would you be angry with a diabetic because they were in a sugar coma? We've nearly separated several times, but hung in there and this past couple of years have been good. My father died in prison when he was 47, leaving my mother to face the world destitute and with the stigma of a prison record. A few months later she seemed to be doing better, but it was hard on me as well. Relationship might be had with some bipolar men but definitely not this one. I could see a concoction like that for when she was in the hospital, but if her moods are relatively stable, the doctor should be able to make some adjustments now to make her feel better.
You are our world, our backbone, our everything. Much love littletimebomb Littletimebomb, Okay well you made me cry too. That is why he hates you so much right now.

The more you do without receiving anything positive in return, the greater the frustration and resentment. I also listened to others and didn't go to school where my heart belongs.
Repeat and Repeat and Repeat ad nauseum. It is based on total honesty, equality, and having lots of fun together. You are a special person for dealing with what you have to deal with. She is contemplating just discontinue using the meds all together and I told her that was a bad idea. And we know it, too. Is there anything else I can do or is he gone forever? I lost my job because of my issues and treated my boyfriend like crap, and he stuck with me through it all.
I noticed small things at first. How did your loved one feel about your decision after fully recovering from the episode? No one can take your place, you are the provider for this family and me accepting this gift from him is no way to make you feel less than a man. This after many times of being abandoned by her, kicked out, left, yelled at, screamed at, spit on, sometimes slapped. For many couples, this is simply a matter of reminding the person that he or she is becoming irritable and to stop. My bipolar rapid cycling with its constant mood swings has also made it difficult to maintain any type of long-term relationships. My relationship was salvaged and I am lucky enough to once again know great love with someone wonderful. She never remarried and her life has been a constant struggle.
It' is unfair, if not wicked and tasteless, to debase an entire population of six million Americans who have bipolar as incapable or undeserving of one of the most basic and vital human needs, a fulfilling relationship. On top of that, she never considers my feelings in anything. My life will belong to me, not my disease. Tell us when you first noticed mood changes in your daughter.

We were married for 16 years. The fragility is difficult to understand. I know people with bipolar disorder in long-term relationships. That man isn't managing his illness at all and needs to take positive steps to improve his life. If terrible things have been said or done, it can be difficult for both sides to forgive and move on.

It was an incredibly intense involvement and a very, very happy relationship, but after we broke up which was my doing , I have tried to reach out to her and see if we could work everything out.
When I tried to teach her daughter to not get black nail polish on my brand new carpet and leave unfinished food laying all around the house my wife would reprimand me in front of her daughter and tell her that I had a personality disorder. I am still not even working and want to burst into tears when normal for lack of a better word people who don't know I have mental illness ask something simple like 'what do you do? Our relationship was nothing but change. When I met a man less than a year ago, I answered his question about what I do by telling him about my book contract. Her parents helped coming from out of town, we moved back and forth to their place…. I am finally getting back to my normal self and feel good about life once again however it has taken a while. I warn my new boyfriend I am crazy , he doesn't believe me as he hasn't seen my bipolar raise it's ugly head and I hope he doesn't.
Dealing with depressive episodes largely requires a different cognitive approach from the non-bipolar member of a relationship. I wound up living in northern Florida and meeting someone new and wonderful. My journey has not been easy and I know that I must be vigilant in the ways I keep myself on track. I went over her house a couple of weeks ago and went gambling with her because I told her I would, but also told her we should gamble responsibly. I told her she was not responsible, we bother were for the mistakes we made. Going to movies, the park, the river. What about the times when your loved one was balanced, and the illness did not rule their life or yours? In fact it is the opposite of that.
