Every time we get into a money situation or things simply aren't going the way they should be, my hubby says he is going to kill himself. When he first started doing this 11 yrs ago! It would devastate me and I would try to do all I could to make him change his mind, now 11 yrs later, I just roll my eyes...because he cries wolf so much. His first wife had him put in a 72 hour lock down because he did the same to her. The psychiatrist saw him and said he was quite normal This is really driving me crazy...what can I do . Is this his way of being a bully?

My thoughts based solely on what you have written.
Money is not worth being that distressed over in my opinion. Being that upset, making such statements does not solve money issues. It just makes the situation far worse. Being this upest and reacting this way does not suddenly make money appear in the bank, and it doesn't stop the bills from piling up or stop new ones from being made. However, reacting this way does: upset everyone, it does make the situation seem more dire than it may be, it does make it harder to look at a situation objectively , it does make it harder to come up with a doable plan and put it into action.
I would dare say..... he needs to learn a more constructive way of: dealing with stress, expressing his feelings and viewing finances.
