Welcom to our forum. You wil find a lot of the support you need here. This forum has helped me tons in dealing with
my wifes BP. Before I came here & talked to others who were in the almost identical situation, I felt like I was never
going to get thru it because there was nobody out there that could possibly be going thru what I was. Boy was I wrong!
I have met so many wonderful people here that have the same experiances, just knowing that alone helps treendously.
Something you can get used to hearing from the other spouces is "I could have written your post myself". Although all
of our situations are unique, the characteristics & behaviours this condition creates are very similar.
As for your wife & her condition right now. You did the right thing by taking her to the er. Now she is somwhere safe
and where they can observe her & get her meds straitened out. You will probably still have a rough time when she gets
back home, so be prepared. Not trying to sound negative, I just don't want you to make the same mistake I did the first
time my wife came home from the hospital. I thougt that everything would be great, she would be "cured" & life would be
more normal again. But it wasn't, she was back in the hospital within a month. The big thing will be her taking her meds
the way she is supposed to & staying on the treatment plan they give to her. Support her the best you can, but
understand that she has to do this herself. You can encourage & support all you want, but if she doesn't want it for
herself, then it isn't going to happen.
Take care & keep cheking in, we will try to help as best we can.
