My life is never stable, never peaceful with my bipolar husband. When I married him, I didn't know he was mentally ill. I thought he was a little hyper, perhaps with a bad temper. Now, after almost 9 years of marriage and two children, he's been finally diagnosed.
He complains all the time about my lack of affection and the fact that I don't want to have sex with him. He is verbally abusive, argumentative and demanding. He throws temper tantrums like a three year old. When I do give in and have sex with him, he's okay for a while. The only way to get him to calm down is to give him sex. HE CAN NEVER GET ENOUGH!
He's insecure and it is driving me crazy. I want to leave, but don't have any money. He makes me feel guilty for wanting to leave, telling me I'm going to destroy our family.
He tried meds, but got off of them.
What am I going to do?
