I'm looking for some help on coping with my current situation.
I have BP with rapid cycling but function well.
My DW has BP, agoraphobia, social anxiety, OCD, and night terrors.
Due to her greater problems, I pick up the majority of the workload (job, kids, cleaning, cooking, etc) and I am starting to feel like a slave. I feel like my BP disorder does not really matter and I need to just push thru my problems with little or no complaint. I end up being angry most of the time because I feel like I really don't matter at all. I cannot talk to my DW about anything "real" without putting her in a panic. I'm seeing a therapist and hope that it helps, but really I feel like my feelings are not something I am entitled to have. I have no friends outside my much younger brother and only work... I have no time for myself after I've done my best to take care of everything. I've been a pesimist for a while, but could always believe that things would get better some day. I don't think that anymore.
