About The Wives/Girlfriends of Men with Bipolar and/or Schizophrenia support group

I recently found out that my husband has Schizophrenia I have so many questions, concerns, and much more. I know I can't be the only women in this situation so I thought I'd start a support group for us. If your husband or boyfriend has a mental disorder please fell free to join. Please no drama, bashing, and try to keep the language to minimum except in the adult content area that have the warning on them, some of us have children who can read and walk by the computer screen. Trolls will be deleted and blocked from the group. Feel free to give me any suggestions for forums to add to the group, I value and appreciate everyone's opinion and ideas.

You can always find this group with the following URL:
http://www.cafemom.com/group/mymanhasSchizophreniaBipolar

or

http://www.cafemom.com/group/106858

 

I'm asking you to please vote this popular. Not so I can be "famous online" or brag, I'm desperately seeking answers and support for what my husband, kids, and I am going through and I know there millions of women like me. The more popular this gets the more moms will see it and hopefully some of those will be in my situation who see it and they'll join the group. Thank you!

My father is Schizophrenic, so I understand on some level. Best of wishes to you and your group. I know it can be frustrating, frightening, and stressful.

I am bipolar and I take meds daily. It is sad even if I am a couple hrs late taking my meds I can tell and people can tell around me. The only thing I hate about it is when I am just moody or emotional people ask me are you out of your meds... I feel like damn can I not have normal bad days like everyone else in the world. I hope your husband can find the right meds for him!

I too am bi-polar and I know what you mean. I get pissy and it must be I didn't take my medication! So annoying. I just don't have what my husband does. he apparently hears voices and stuff which I don't and he gets extreme anger rages. he doesn't hit me but he gets extremely mad. Thanks ya'll for your support!

It's no secret I am a big fan of CM groups and this is precisely the reason why. This is primarily a social network but when we can use this site to get the support and education we need in our own lives then it's just awesome.

I pray that you and your husband find your way through this. Congrats on your group. I sincerely hope you find the support you and others like you need.
