 I am new to this forum.  I was reading some post before I signed up. I understand a little more about bipolor and the type my husband has, thanks for the  information on that .  We have been together for about 14 years  and about 5 years ago he was dignost with bipolor but no help for me . I  have been through alot with my husband as well . God love him he tries, but just can't go through with alot of things that need to be done with good judgement.  He doesn't finish nothing he starts and then blames me for him not finishing it.  His mood swings are so high then low ,I feel like im on a roller coaster ride. My husband does say that he doesn't know how I put up with him ,when he is in between stages as I put it, some times there are no in between .  He has been with out meds. for a year  I just found a doctor to see him thank god, I can't take any more of it as much as I love him it takes a toll some times.He don't sleep alot and he just goes until  his down side comes.  He did sleep awhile today.  I hope tonight as well . He starts a lot of fights with me and that hurts so bad.We use to talk andhave fun ,  I am married  to a stranger most of the time . If some one can help me understand and how to deal with it I would so be greatful.thank you for being here.

Hi Angelslove,

Welcome to HealingWell and to the bipolar forum.

I'm sure in his heart your husband is very thankful to have you, even if he can't show it all the time. I'm really glad to hear he's going to see a doc and get on some meds, because it really makes a huge difference in living with the disorder. It can take some time to find a med that works without side effects, but the journey is worth it.

I hope you find the community you need here, and let me urge you to try and find a counselor for yourself, because what you are living with is hard, and takes a toll on a person.

Good luck and welcome,
