You are definatly not alone feeling this way. The toll that this condition takes on everyone involved is brutal. It wrecks havok with the person with the condition and their relationships with the people that love them. The things they say and do can cause so much hurt that some wounds never fully heal. It is sad when you do have to wonder if you will ever get that person fully back or not. I know I have had my doubts with my wife myself. It hurts to see the way this conditions makes her act, sleeping 14 hours a day, not doing hardly any of the things she used to enjoy doing & constantly feeling sorry for herself. When you throw the moods in on top of it, hers is either numb, depressed or angry, rarely happy or upbeat. It really doesn't help. I feel like when you get those really good moments when they are their real selves, it's to keep your hope alive so you don't just throw your hands up & walk off.
