We've had good and bad times but lately (like the past 3 years) it seems like it's more bad times than good. I suspect he may be bipolar (as his mom also thinks) and he admits he is depressed. He's been going to see both a psychologist and psychiatrist, is trying out different medications but I'm not sure if it's doing any good. He's so resistant. Any little progress made is erased when he regresses to how he was before (stubborn, antisocial, suicidal, irritable, violent). He has attempted suicide several times before when I tried to leave him. Not just threats but actual attempts. I feel stuck being with someone who wants only what he wants and at the same time doesn't seem to know what he wants. I am so tired with arguing and dealing with the police. He keeps either guilting me to stay or turns against me and tries to prove he wasn't violent and that I was. Not to mention he cheated on me before and still refers to it as "technically not cheating." I keep asking him why he wants me to stay if he doesn't act like he cares, doesn't want to spend time with me or do anything for me. Most of our communication turns into fights since he tries to twist facts around. He even minces words with the counselor, even when it's a written agreement. I don't know what to do. There are too many other issues to even mention here. It's not so simple to leave but exactly how do I leave so that he doesn't end up killing himself? We've been together 6 years. I am heartbroken and confused.
