Re: On the other side, live with a bipolar
Disasterous, yes...relationship (marriage 18 yrs.) is constantly "work in progress". The wind can blow and the whole entire household is affected. A lot of patience is needed. Regarding children, 12 yrs. & 8 yrs...I just hope they do not have bipolar. They just have learned to "tune out" dad for the most part. Both dad and kids have missed out, disappointment. Jealously because children are closer to me and will talk to me and not dad when they have a problem or something exciting to share.
I joke with myself and say I did not sign up for this and I know people with bipolar certainly did not either. I guess this is what was dealt to us?
