I met my husband in 2012, we married 2014 and one month later I was diagnosed Bipolar after years of depression and not being able to find a happy ok medium.
Fast forward to today and my marriage is over. 5 years of hell and turmoil has taken it's toll. We separated in January because I made him leave but against my better judgement, we tried again. It's just too hard to work with.
I am currenyly rapid cycling after being stable for a couple of months after a med change. I see my mental health clinician tomorrow morn.
Welcome to the forum family - hopefully you can find some support and even on-line friendship here - people are very sensitive and help people whenever we can
I separated from my husband after over 23 years of marriage - 30 years ago this year - I can assure you that things have been much better than before the separation but for a couple of years I found it very hard - and understand what you are saying -
It must be worse with bipolar - it's necessary to make a new life and that can be hard -
I do wish you the best with your interview tomorrow and I really hope you can find the easier way of life eventually - it's there - it's not easy to find
Hi @Kelbel75 , welcome to the forum. I hope your appointment went well. I was diagnosed with bipolar a bit of a year ago. I haven't gone through rapid cycing. I had a pretty bad manic episode, but, have been pretty stable since. I am sorry to hear about your troubles, but, its alright to let it all out, hoefully it helps
