My husband, love of my life, has swift mood swings. For example; last night I was upset because he cancelled plans with me yet again. We had plans to go see Stomp with his parents. He decided not to go, disappointing myself and his mother. I did not yell at him, I simply said "I do not want to talk to you right now" and he freaked out! He had been fine until then, moodwise. Then he started cussing at me, threw my magazine across the room, spit toward me, and proceeded to tell me to "go now." All the while I was sitting there calmly. Then he went inside and took the car keys, yelling "You're not taking my f'ing car!" I talked my friend/neighbor into going with me, and got ready to go. My husband came to me and said "I'm sorry for getting so mad about petty stuff, but I don't want to go." I chose not to speak to him because I might have said some unnecessary things myself. In trying to make me happy again, he started playing peekaboo around the car as I pulled out of our neighbor's driveway. (this all happened within 30 minutes)
This is only one of many examples. This is the most recent, and the most extreme so far. He also gets down on himself, and I do my best to encourage and reassure him. Sometimes it's hard to be my cheerful self when he is trying to bring everyone down with him.
Please offer me an opinion! I know that you don't know much of our history, but I'd be happy to offer more insight to anyone whos interested!
I love my husband!! I will stand by his side no matter what! If there's help out there for him...I want to help him find it!!
Thanks for reading!
