Turbulance, I am so sorry to hear of your troubles. I will pray for you right now and your dear husband. I have a friend, more than one , I am sure, who is bi-polar. When he takes his meds and drinks , it is like he is not even taking his meds. Any Doctor that he has ever spoken to has stated that you must not drink while on the medicine. I also have alchoholic friends and family members......have you tried a family intervention? How old are your daughters ?
My brother stopped drinking , when , with the help of his doctor, had a family interevention. His two young boys told their daddy how his drinking made them feel . He went into extensive treatment and 4 years later has not drank. He goes to AA meetings in our little town twice a week. He had a atroke at 33 , which left him paralyzed on the right side. He is a great inspiration to others, hope you find some in my story. I would love to be here for you anytime. Join us on the chat sometime too. Oakley
