Hey guys,
quick update....of course you guys are well aware I've beed  trying to get my wife to get back on her meds. Last week we went to therapy and the doc gave her the perscritption and she has yet to fill it. She says she doesn't want to do nothing right now, but sit in the house, play video games and hang out on the town with her sisters, and friends. I have told her she needs to take this time that she is not working to take care of herself and try to get better. I am growing COMPLETELY FRUSTRATED with this whole ordeal and I'm not sure I want to go on with this. I love my wife dearly as you guys already know, there is nothing I wouldn't do for her or my children...I'm just ready to pack up my children and leave. I don't mind if my wife hang out with the girls and all that girls night out I'm just not into it. However, I just want her to get some kind of stability goin. I am leaving again out of town because my fight is coming up on the 19th so I need to get back in camp and focus on my job. In the interim I hope she considers everything we spoke about. I will stay in touch, I truly thank all of you guys for your continued support and understanding.

I'm so sorry. Nothing's going to force her onto those meds. No one would blame you for leaving if you have to, it might be the wake up call she needs.

Hi naone,

Yeah, I agree with serafena.  You have really been so supportive of her and she is just in so much denial.

I have bipolar and I'm sorry to say that sometimes it takes falling flat on your face before you realize that you need the help and need to take your medications.

In the meantime you need to focus on what she is doing to you and your family.  None of you deserve that.  Perhaps with you making a stand with leaving (which I think is totally appropriate) she may start to think...maybe not, but in that case you would know that you are making the best decision for you and your children.
