Quoting Spfldmomof2:I have major depression, PTSD, and SAD. He supports me like I support him with his bi polar and anger. I will have to take meds for the rest of my life but so will he. It's not bad.
I don't know that I would call it a mental illness, but I was just evaluated for Autism/Asperger's. We are waiting on the report, but we pretty much know what the result will be. It is certainly hard on us, but we are learning more and hopefully can learn strategies to deal with it more effectively.
I am not married but my DF tries hard to understand what I am going through and is always supportive. I am diagnosed with Bi-polar-personality disorder. It DOES affect our relationship and my relationship with my kids. I take medications and go to a physiatrist monthly to deal with it. Were also are starting to do YOGA as a family and other calming/breathing activities.
I am Bipolar
My husband is very understanding actually and will just take my son somewhere to play when I get really angry.
It wears on us both. Him, because I am mean sometimes and me, because I hate that I can't control my emotions and get sooo angry sometimes.
I take medication, see a therapist and do yoga, it helps
