I'm the husband of a BP wife. Have been married to her for 30yrs.
After she lost control in Jan 2012,and was in hospital were the decided she was bi polar type 1. I have found out she's knew she was a manic depressed perosn as teenager and treated for it. Never told me about this keep it from me. So I wonder what all else see has keep from me? Has been using drugs most of her life nd addict for 10 to 15years. I didn't see this as she was just sick all the time. They now say she was sick to get drugs. Doctor shopping they call that much I now know. Made up all kinds of stories about stuuf myself, her daughter and others have done, talks to god, things people are going are in the house that someone is going to kill her, she better that everone else, or done what their doing and it wasn't good enough for her. I just can't even remember it all.
Right now she's 2 months out of hospital on meds (the right ones hopefully) I'm wanting to stay with her and support her with all this. they tell me next to no chance of beating addiction on her own, put only 15 to 18% with my support not good odds. She claims to be to embarrassed to talk to her doctors bout thing and is ok with them just working on addiction, is afraid they will commit her, So again I wonder what all I don't know about.
I realize I can't do it for her, but don't think she reallly trying.
It's like a game to her and she's just playing along till she can be in control of the game.
The doctor and all can't help her if she can;t face it and tell the truth to them. I planto give her some time don't know how long or how long is right? there just to much to tell it wood be a book or 2 maybe 3 or more.
Glade I found this forum. Good to know I'm not hte only one. But sad to know so many are going thru this and the law is protecting the the person doing all the harm to other. Her lies go as far as telling the drug enforcement task force 3, 4, maybe 5 different stories and lying them off her back some how.
Thanks agian for allowing me a place to type and post
