My husband is a quiet passive loving caring man when he takes his meds and doesnt drink alcohol. Well With stress and drinking again self medicating he has gone in to what i think is a mixed manic. He hears voices, then will go into deep depression then 30 min later mania, and will go to the mail bog every 10 minutes for 5 hours. He will be kind then 5 min later aggressive verbally abusive throws things then go into depression. This has been going on for 4 weeks. He either takes to much of his meds or not enough. I have Lupus and my health is in the ground. I have no friends my husband only has one and thats it. I am about to fall on my face. They say call the police not so easy I will loose my apartment. He wont go to the hospital does have apt tomorrow with doc but said its because he is a bit moody. I really love this man. Most of the time he is fine with little episodes and not often at all. This has only happened one other time when I first met him and he was drinking and it got real bad. It has been 4 months since he had a drink 4 weeks ago he drank 3 bottles of wine 1 one night then at the end of the week 2 more. He has abused. Any advise I will take anything at all at this point sad sad

Welcome to HealingWell and to the bipolar forum.

It sounds like you're having a really hard time of it. Have you checked out our Lupus forum?

Your husband needs help right now, and it's a good thing that he has a doc appt. Ask him if you can go along. You might be able to help the doc understand exactly what is going on.

Aside from that, you need to take care of yourself. Your own illness will get out of control if you let your husband take over your life. Have you considered counseling for yourself to help you deal with the stress of living with someone with active bipolar episodes? Are you seeing your own doc regularly?

Be well,
