Re: Bipolar wife. PLEASE help !

you are wonderful to be so understanding through all these crises. is there any way she would consider both of you going to a good psychiatrist and explainging the whole situation? also maybe have her read 'an unquiet mind' by kay redfield jameson, who describes very well the inability to withstand that urge to shop when in mania. i too sometimes do the shopping spree thing. i do try to only go to the bargain rails and now when i have to go town and i try to only see pdoc and go straight home. is there any way you can return any of the stuff she has purchased or sell on ebay? i sincerely hope you both get the help you need and congratulate you for sticking with her and asking for help.
