My dh has been "off" lately... when I ask him what's wrong his answer is "i don't know".  He's been telling me he's been having thoughts lately... wanting to stay up late and yet getting up at a "normal" time in the morning.  He has a doc appt tomorrow thankfully but I'm worried that we won't get him on a new medication on time....................................... I don't want to go through this again.

It's good you have a doc appointment tomorrow. It definitely sounds like he's going manic. Don't worry yet. Remember the doc may also just play with the meds he's already on, which would take effect sooner than a new med. You've caught this as soon as you could.

Thanks Serefena.  I did speak with his case worker this morning and he's going to try to get him into see his psych next week instead of the end of the month.  All our fam doc can do is up his meds at this point and I think i'm going to try to push for him to go into a mental health facility where they keep you in for as many days as needed while trying out new meds as I don't think these ones are really doing much.  He's really angry lately and we're getting the brunt of that - not physically (just to clarify) but more with his short temper (yelling) and bad mood.  This is just weird for me because now that we HAVE a concrete diagnosis to BP - whereas before he was still getting tests done - it just feels like , ok, this is it...  now all the stuff i've been reading about to try to get as much knowledge as I can is going to be put to test and practice shocked i'm scared.
