Re: I have no idea what to do
I'd like to share my situation w/you..maybe it would help...I, too, am bi-polar, but had many more depressive episodes than maniac ones...it took a while to find the right combination of medications, but I've had going on 4 years of happiness...lost my husband of 18 years to a girlfriend but gained custody of my 12 year old son--the best thing that's ever happened to me.
It truly is an illness..and I can say that from experience that counseling did "nothing" for me...there are new medications being released every month...has he been prescribed anythin?
My ex had stuck with me for those years (before I was diagnosed) but had been very adamant about taking medication--saying that it was all in my head....when I took things in my own hands and began taking meds, I began to get better.....and he left...I'm glad that we're no longer together, but I'll never forgive him for not trying.
I'm not trying to make you feel bad, but if he truely is bi-polar, it's something he has no control over and people need to be educated about that....
I hope that I haven't offended you..maybe helped a little??..if you have any questions, please ask...I'm always anxious to share..
