 When I'm not taking my medication I become what is called "manic" I get these uncontrolable urges to clean, dance and be merry then I instantly become depressed and ready to kill myself. Everything makes me cry, it doesn't matter what. I have extreme boughts of sadness. I get uncontrolable rages that no matter who or what pisses me off for NOTHING and I will just scream. I've never been physically violent though. There are times that I feel so guilty that I shake and become anxious that no one will want to be around me anymore because I'm "crazy". I have this overwhelming scene that when people hear that I'm bipolar, that they immediately think I'm crazy.

When I AM on my medication, I'm somewhat emotionless, I cannot cry it's almost impossible. I still get annoyed a little bit but I'm much nicer.

My husband has such bad moods swings. He will be happy and I swear I blink and he is so pissed and I have no idea why.... He then shuts down and refuses to deal with or talk to anyone..

 yup that's what happens with bipolar disorder. Just reassure him you love him, you EMPATHIZE with him and give him some space.
