I found a website specifically for spouses and partners of bipolar patients. It has a forum too -- don't use that. Stay here.
But there are some great links up on the top of the page for Support and the Role of the Family in dealing with Bipolar. Thought you might wanna check it out.www.bpso.org/index.php
