Welcome aboard! I hope you like it around here. I have for so many years!
I am glad that you posted your concerns. I would like respond by first reminding you that your son has a strong history of mental illness and that you should take this matter very seriously and get him evaluated by a psychiatrist. Talk with yours. Your son is telling you that he knows something is not right and you as a parent should absolutely get this looked into for him. You don't want him to suffer.
If your husband is in denial with his diagnosis or medication issues he serves no example for you or your son, only negatively by his actions and I am sure that should encourage you for your son and yourself to stick with a treatment plan. I can understand how difficult this must be for you.
If you are having problems with dealing with things and feel that you are losing it, you need to relay this to your doctor. A medication adjustment may be needed. Do you see a therapist for yourself? Most people who have B/P incorporate this as part of their wellness plan.
Stay strong for yourself and your son.
Wishing you wellness, and please keep us posted.
