Welcome to our forum, everyone here is suer supportive & you will find that with almost any question you have, someone else here has been thru it too, either as the BP sufferer themselves or as the spouce/family member of one. You are seeing now one side of this illness, that is pretty typical. The I'm fine I don't need my meds thing. When my wife first went into the hospital, everything was good, it's when she got home is when the trouble started. At the hospital as long as she took her meds & participated in group everything went smooth. When she got home she thought she would be able to walk all over me, but after 8 years of it, the last two being almost unbearable, I had had enough. I started not letting her talk to me any way she wanted. This of course didn't settle too well, which is part of the reason for the hospital visits. Somehow she equated not putting up with her verbal abuse any longer as not loving her anymore & started in with the suiscide & just wanting to die talk.
Sadly, a bp can sometimes be like a hild with their behavior (as you are seeing) especially if they have been getting by with it fo a while, then the sudden change doesn't go over too well. It sounds to me like you are doing what you need to do here. It will be rough for a while, but stand your ground on this. You can't shove the meds down his throat yourself, but let him know and understand what the consequenses are if he doesn't follow his treatment, he will get over the pouting about it. Keep in mind thought that the meds aren't an instant cure, they may take a few weeks to stabilize & start having a real effect, so try to be patient with the process. But again, they will only work if he takes them.
