Re: BP and Lying
how do you and your family deal with it?
After 27 years of marriage, my husband was recently diagnosed with BP, only after going on a major lying/spending spree. I only wish it was in the $1000 to $2000 range, as was yours. It's closer to $100,000. We're having to put our home on the market, hoping that in this crappy market, that it will sell and we'll get some money out of it (to pay off some of his expenditures), as well as not being able to finish paying for our son's college. I wish I could say he was through spending, but just a week ago he lied to me about taking money out of his 401K account. How do I and the family deal with it? Some days I cry a lot, I'm seeing a therapist weekly, I've cut the credit cards, my youngest son hates his dad, and I'm seriously contemplating pursuing some career (after not working in over 20 years to raise my family) because I'm afraid I won't be left with anything. I'd love to speak to other family members of BP, hopefully somebody who can give some hope for the future and living with this. This has been hell for me. I know it's not easy for him either.
