Ive been married to my hubby for 14 years. 2 years ago he was diagnosed with bipolar 2. He religiously takes his meds but he gets so severely depressed he wont get off the couch. This can last for a week straight! He is nice for about 4 days, then can become nasty. I cant handle it anymore. I pray and pray but get nothing. I know divorce isnt an option. I feel so alone.

I understand completely. 17 yrs married to mine. I can't handle it any more either. He's up he's verbally abusive and down. I pray too that it will miraculously end. I have a 15 yr old daughter. We dont have enough money to make it alone. I am on disability due to cfs n fibromyalgia. Some days I just can't take one more minute. All he ever does is promise all will be well. Then he comes at me again screaming n yelling. This is no life.

Love and bipolar don't mix at all

I feel the same way. It sucks so bad. It was worse when he was talky seroqual. At least he is off that. I actually get very scared of his temper and anger. I have 3 puppies who are my life. Recently, I went out of town to see my dad and my husband was supposed to watch the. He actually went to the casino and never called me. I couldn't get ahold of him for 9+ hours!! I am really hurt and totally can empathize with how you feel. I wish I could say it will get better but I have no idea.
