Hi again. Since the last time I've been here, my wife was finally diagnosed with BP Disorder. The pdoc gave her Seroquel (sp?) as a sample to try since she was having manic episodes while on the SSRI (Celexa) and Ativan (Lorazepam).
Looking at the side effects of Seroquel, I can't help but be concerned for her. Diabetes runs in her family and it is a possible side effect along with all the others.
As far as our relationship goes, I get the feeling that she blames me for her situation. She keeps repeating that she had a bad day and no one (including me) was there to help her. That everyone kicked her when she was down. What is sad is that she's partly right because I didn't realize at the time what I was dealing with. She doesn't accept that as an excuse though.
Any insights or advice would be greatly appreciated.
