Sherri honey, It will be okay if you can stay on your meds, and get away from your mentally abusive husband... I know that this may be hard to hear... It's hard for me to say to myself when I finally admit to myself when I get with a guy and stick with him making excuses for him. But the truth of the matter is there are government agencies that can help you and your daughter in this situation. If you are going to therapy, taking your medication, and the two of you are able to get away from him, please do so, he isn't good for your health. I too am bipolar, I fight for my sanity all the time and need projects to do all the time to keep my mind from going out of control and releasing anger and going manic on others when they don't deserve it. then there are times that I am perfectly fine, or I am depressed and cannot lift a finger, but I try to keep myself goal oriented .... for you that would be yourself and your daughter.
No person needs to be treated as they are a slave... He should be more understanding. Maybe he should go to some of your therapy sessions... Manic Depressives/Bipolars, are quick to change moods. We are in a manic or mania phase where we feel like it is all going to come to an end and we are in the center of the cyclone that is going to end it... then we go into deep depressions... no matter how good we are at faking it in public. We become good actors. We hide a lot within. This hurts us more in the long run because it only fuels the cyclone.
Please honey, get help... Ask your Dr about it the next time. His office can get you the connections that you need to get started.
