I'm almost at my wits end with my husband. Ever since I've known him, he has these what I call "off spells" where he goes completely crazy with no normal explanation. Today has been another example. We were moving some animals and it didn't go the way he wanted to he screams, curses, tries to hurt the animal (sometime he does too) threatens to shot them, yells at my 10 yr old son blaming him, yells at me, calls his dad to cuss him out over the whole ordeal because it's got to be his fault too, he wasn't here to help after all. Then 30-45 min's later call's in the house and nicely tells me to send our son back outside (everything is going his way now). When I tell him he's crazy he gets soooo mad tells me to leave, blah blah blah and I wish I could, but if I even thought of it I fell he would try to hurt himself or have another spell destroy the house, as he's done in the past, or who knows? He's soo unpredictable & scary. But with everyone else he's this fun goodtime guy that wouldn't hurt a fly. He only shows his true colors to me, our 2 kids, and his parents.
Not too long ago he was so mad because he wanted some bread and milk he lost control of his truck spinning out of the driveway and hit his mom's car with our 2 yr old son sitting inside it. Then denied the whole thing. Then cried and appologized kinda, but nothing is ever really his fault. Everyone treat's him bad in his eyes, his parent's were too hard on him (when really they spoil him rotten).
I don't know how to talk to him. If I told him I thought he was bipolar I know he would go off and this scares me. I wanna leave but like said it's not that easy with someone who has such rage. And to be so happy and funny with everyone else, 75% of the time he's real negative and grumpy with the family.
Doe's anyone think this sounds like bipolar? How should I approach this. I know I've not even began to explain all the wild things he's done to us, probably couldn't.
Recently he was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis and had to give up his drinking and drugs and I'm not sure if that made much of a difference with the rage, but it definately made him more depressed. And he lies to the doctors when they give him those depression scales and is a really good actor, I just wanna scream when I hear him answer the questions and laugh so charmingly.
If anyone is reading this, thanks for listening!!!
