I responded to a few posts and then realized I needed to read the rules.

I am the spouse of a BP person. We have been married for 28 Years, she was diagnosed with BP about 5 years ago.
When she went to a Dr. we were at our end due to the ups and downs, of course the habits that go along with this disease.
Just when you think you have seen it all and the worst could happen they surprise you!
Decided I better get some input from others living with this. We can only do so much.
I have seen the statistics on BP marriage/divorce rates and it scares me.

We are working together to keep on an even keel, although thats pretty hard to do with BP.

I have read quite a bit here and have learned a great deal. I am certainly not alone out here.

Thanks to all for the open honesty, it has helped me sleep better at night.

Thanks for the post, DataGuy. I'm glad you're getting some relief from the board; it really does help to communicate with others who have been there. Good luck to you and your wife.

I can only imagine what you are going through. I myself am bipolar and I know there are times when I put my husband through absolute hell! The more you both educate yourselves on this illness, the better off you will be. There is a great book I would recomend you pick up called "Loving Someone with Bipolar Disorder" by Julie A. Fast and John D. Preston. I am currently reading it myself and it has some wonderful insight and tips for helping you regain a stable relationship. Good Luck and Welcome!
