Welcome to HW
Well, it's been interesting reading your post and possibly seeing what the other half puts up with at times..but over a 4 year time span I can only imagine your frustration and exhaustion..you really must love your wife..actually I am kinda proud of you for sticking around and helping her out!
So, now she is starting to have Good days amongst the Bad ones so that's cool and means her meds are probably kicking in!
Lots of praise for little steps are needed now. But I feel that it's almost time to stop running around after her quite so much to encourage her independence..from what you have posted she has become very dependent on you almost to the point of trying to control your every move!
Do you think your wife would like to post here at HW? There are lots of people who can really make a difference to both your lives and I am sure will relate to her plight as well as yours
What was your wife diagnosed with exactly? And what meds is she taking?
What you decide to do relationship wise will be your decision and only you can know what is right for you, your wife and your little boy.
Take good care.
