  • First, please get him into counseling. And yourself as well! Bi-polar disorder is a hard one to live with (I know - DH was diagnosed a year ago and is in denial). Depending on what trips his emotional trigger, he will be up and down - sometimes very quickly. Is he on meds?
    There are also many many bi-polar groups on cafemom - they are of great help for support as well!
    Good luck!

  • YES he is on meds they had to change them so he has only been on his new med for a day so i know they need time to work and he is in counseling. it is just so hard for me because i can't help him and i want to be able to but he keeps pushing me away. so i am trying to keep the girls good so we don't trigger him and they are younge so they are not listing. (2and 5) like i said i am 37 weeks pregnant so i feel like i am losing control and losing everything i work so hard at keeping. i am going crazy

  • Wow...thanks. I think maybe I should consider getting back on my meds. Maybe, just maybe, my SO is feeling this way too. I am glad I read this question.

  • Read the book called "I hate you, Don't Leave me". It might help explain things a bit better. There is also one called Stop Walking on Eggshells that's helpful as well. There is a group on CM for ppl with loved ones who have personality disorders. Remember that folks with disorders can't control their feelings so don't take anything personally that gets said.
