Bipolar Disorder Message Board

[QUOTE=kda;4176512]The last 8 months I've been doing wonderful, I've finally found a great combo of medication, got my adhd under control. But the last two months, the love of my life has been going through a very difficult time. We moved, he changed jobs, I've been out of work trying to find a job. At one point he hit so far below rock bottom that I was having to drag him out of bed everyday and take him to work. I was left wondering if I am really the one with bipolar disorder? There I was hiding my sleeping pills, car keys, chemicals, from HIM. I effectively hid them, it's been 3 weeks and I can't remember where I stashed them, the ambien. I managed to keep him from harming himself, got him to a doctor and on to depression medication. Now I'm left with the after effects. I think his depression is dragging me down. I'm numb, empty, I don't wanna do anything. I feel lonely all the time, and I have no friends here. I'm avoiding people. He's horrible to be around, always negative. I can't even motivate to go to yoga, I just wanna stick my head in the sand.
Any advice?[/QUOTE]

Sorry to hear, I am Bipolar and my wife was in a depressive mood because she has periferal nueropathy. I too wondered who was really the sicker of the two. Lets face it without any support at times you feel the whole world is a gainst you. That is the way I felt, I had at one point moved everyting to my bedroom and would not even go outside. I decided to face it head on. I figured I had nothing to loose, look where I was. There is a lot of talk on these boards about two Bipolars being married knowingly or not. The point being maybe he is as you say Bipolar too, that would would mean stabalizer meds which I can not do without and constant therapy and doctors visits. Sometimes things have to be done in my case, no matter the after affects, to maintain an even life style. You always have friends here. I wish we could post web sites on here I have so much in my head from many years of tears. You have friends in here.

I really appreciate it. Sometimes I feel like I'm walking around with the weight of a 100 story building on my head. Knowing that there are others out there who understand and care really means a lot I'm fabulous at juggling stress, doing 300 things at once, remaining positive. But I feel as if I'm beating my head against a bloody wall with. In every situation he finds the absolute most negative scenario and tries his hardest (I feel) to bring me down. It makes no sense to me. I can be given something horrible, and find my way out. Maybe it's a personality difference? Is it? What did you do? How do you get out?
When he went to the dr and came home and said he wasn't bipolar... It was difficult not to haul his butt to another asap. Coming from someone who's dealt with it for 8 years, I just don't think depression is the answer. I take my medication every day like clock work. For once in my life I'm stable, my moods are great, and someone else is bringing me down. No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to help. You can't make someone get help right? What do you do when they're sucking the energy from you? Taking out their emotional frustrations by picking on you? I've lived with bipolar for 8 years. A father that's bipolar, who refused medication until this last year, my whole life, and a biploar sister. I have patience, thick skin, but I'm tired of people who won't help themselves. Thank you so much for listening. I'm just so burnt out.
