Question similar situations?

ok so hubby was just diagnosed with BP. He was in the hospital a few months ago with major depression, suicidal thoughts and anxiety. now he's in a day treatment and the p doc diagnosed him as having BP.

i myself have depression and anxiety but it's somewhat under control.

anyhow, we are parents and sometimes i wonder if the things he does are healthy for the girls. he gets irritated really easily, yells, jumps down your throat, takes everything the wrong way, he is right all the time, etc.

i no longer walk on eggshells cause i got tired of doing so and realize that this is BP. He will say to me that i do not understand what he's going through but i say that he has no right to treat anyone that way.

he is very angry about having this cause he knows it's for life. we both haven't come to terms with the diagnosis. he just got put on a med for it, along with these other meds he is on from before, and it doesn't seem to work yet. he is still easily agitated. he has trouble sleeping so he's grumpy all the time.

is there anyone else going through this with a spouse and children cause i could really use some support. there is so much more symptoms to mention but i get stressed out with it all i can't think right now.

going to head over to depression for myself now, glad to have found this board.

Re: similar situations?

hi Married,

i don't quite have the same experience, BUT i did resent my diagnosis, but at the same time was relieved there was one!

How old are you and hubby if you don't mind me asking?
What exactly is his diagnosis?
It is tough on everyone ini the family but not insurmountable. he will need a lot of support and understanding.

My daughter has had to understand A LOT, i hate it, but at the same time with 2 bipolar parents she's bound to have it.

It's a long journey for him and you.

Let's start slowly, we're all here for you
