My wife and I have been divorsed and remmarried once already and we are now seperated.  She actually agreed to go to marriage counseling this time and the counslor told me she thinks my wife might be bipolar.  I also found out that her brother was diagnosed as bipolar last year.  Im not completly sure what to think so Im trying to learn about it.  My wife and I have lived together since 1999. about every six months usually around now early spring and early fall she all the sudden is unhappy with me and marriage and wants to leave... But just before she leaves Im am the best husband in the world and everything is awesome... Now everytime things start going really well I get nervous...  Then after we split she usually comes back for a few days all in love then freaks out usualy saying nonono we are getting divorced and leaves crying.  Does this sound like bipolar???  Usualy my wife is the nicest sweetest girl and seems very happy but its like some thing switches inside of her and she thinks marriage and me are terrible?????
THanks for any info........

Your wife does appear to be having problems but it may just be that she isn't sure what she wants. Only a Dr. can diagnose bipolar disorder.
I'm sorry you're having so many marital problems. I know how that goes. I'd sure stick with the marriage counseling if possible. Maybe an evaluation by a doctor is in order as well. Just my opinion.
Take care, welcome to Healingwell
Good judgement comes from experience and alot of that comes from bad judgement.

Hi Rich,  Welcome to Healing Well forum.  I totally agree with Ellie, you most likely need to stick with the counseling and try to encourage your wife to seek the help of a psychiatrist who is the one that would diagnosis bipolar disorder.  I wish you much luck with it.  There are lots of resources you can read on BP here on healing well if you want to become familiar with it and symptoms.  You are also more than welcome to post questions or whatever on here, we are glad to have you.  Take care....
