I believe it was, that is why I am taking it that way...I was just teasing a little with you Believe me, I know letting me out of the restrained cage I feel like I live in sometimes, and really being allowed to say fully what I mean, and being able to speak as clearly as I try so my thoughts are not misinterpreted, is such a relief, I DO go on to much at times. But it does feel like being let out of a cage! My husband can only handle SOUND BITES 99% of the time!!!!!!!!!!!! Imagine for a gal like me how hard it is to talk in practical CODE speak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OY! Thank GOD for you all. Thanks for always putting up with me LFW

I am so sorry you are hurting right now. I know how that rock in the bottom of your stomach feels. You must believe in yourself and in the woman you love. Unfortunately, this beastly disorder is taking over her words and actions right now. Take the advice of LFW when she says to focus on what you CAN control.....your thoughts...your words...your actions. Time is on your side. Give the medicine time to work and while the meds are working, you can focus on your school work. Before you know it , you will have finished your paper and will have an update regarding your wife's trip and her thoughts.
It may not seem like it now, but she needs you to be strong and loving for the both of you right now. Don't let the disorder define your relationship for you. Learn all that you can about the disorder and its sympoms, its effects, and the types of problems you can expect. Don't let it manage you....you must learn to manage it. I know...easier said than done, but, you are in the best place to start managing your life together with bp.
I am so touched by each of your posts and your loving words for your wife. Your love for her, and your determination to support her in her illness, and an understanding about the disorder may be just enough to get you through some very rough times!
