Not necessarily. I'm bipolar but not abusive to people I love. When I'm depressed I may withdraw, but affection usually makes me feel better.
It sounds like your husband might have a lot of stress factors (not that you don't). No job, family issues, bipolar disorder. I myself have bipolar disorder and have taken meds for it for years. I know that when I am under stress, it can trigger my mood swings even when I am on meds. Do you think he would consider getting some counseling? A psychologist is reasonably priced and can help him work through some of these stresses. I would also recommend not trying to talk with him about problems when he is angry. With me, it only fuels the fire. Talk when you are both calm. I think there may be support groups for spouses of bipolars. Google it or ask the counselor for info. I have actually asked my husband to help me monitor my moods because it isn't always easy to see for yourself. Be aware that bipolar mood swings can become dangerous, especially if he isn't on meds currently. Best wishes to you & your husband.
That sucks. I would tell him to **** off and not speak to HIM for treating you like that.
Yeah that's bout normal...You are living a dogs life my friend
How about you feed HIM to the dog?
