I can relate with your husband, DO NOT LEAVE...I am not BP,my wife is..I can only sympathize with you...but I can tell you not to leave your husband who's been there and will always be there. We are very special guys to be here for our wives when they go through these things...there aren't a lot of men who would fight through it with you...he's not leaving you there don't leave him there....Steph...you can do it.....fight with EVERYTHING you have to stay with your family...at the end of the day...it's all you have...if you are strong enough and conscience enough to love them...than you are conscience enough and strong enough to fight. God Bless your husband....I'm right there with him...and God Bless you.

I'm really glad you made the choice to go to the doctor and try the medications again. Life is so much easier when we are on the right ones. I'm really sorry to hear about your last experience with meds, but there are so many out there to try, please never give up. Stay in contact with your doc and let him know anytime something pops up that you're having a hard time dealing with. Adjustments are key.
I think most of us feel that our spouses or families would be better off without our crazy life that we live and end up dragging them through as well. But as someone else has said, that's really only the disease talking!!!!
I'm interested to hear how this new med will work for you. I think I read on another post that "Precious Gem" just started this drug and felt results pretty quickly. Everyone is different, but I hope it works out well for you too.
Great idea about starting a new med on the weekend when your husband is available to keep an eye on you. That is how I approach new med changes as well.
Keep us posted!
