Help... Need Advice & Answers to Bi-Polar Issues

My DH is really having issues again. I don't know what is serious or not. I am really thinking of committing him again. His head is so screwed up. He is to the point again of not being able to cope with stress. I think he is okay at work. Then at home, he can not function.

Connie - I am so sorry that you are going through this again.

I would say that you need to contact your DH's primary care doctor and tell him/her what you have observed and see
what they say.

Maybe he only needs his medication dosage adjusted??

I agree with Abear. This is a condition that can only be treated with medication and therapy. If your DH will not go, then you should go see him/her yourself and get advice from someone who knows your hubby. If your DH gets upsets, let him know that you love him and are only doing what is best for him and the family.

the doctor did change his meds. I did find out though.... ds and dh went back to see the doctor at the same time and dsh lied to the doctor, "everything is just fine at home." All the doctors dh has seen have told him the same thing, WORK with the medication. I need to get the balls to walk out. And not look back. Leave both ds1 and dh, they can kill each other off...... but don't come running to me to fix it. Dh refuses to take a active part in finding a good doctor for his surgery... maybe I should let him use the dumb one he has been seeing. Lose the use of a arm... isn't that a little harsh though? But I can't forever be the one to fix everything for them.

Connie...

There appears to be a long standing issues and a stressful environment for you. Instead of trying to solve their problems,
I would like to see you get a check up and take care of yourself because I see signs of depression and being overwhelmed..
Counseling sessions for you will help you cope with your family situation. Sometimes talking to someone who is there to help YOU can relieve a lot of the stress. *Hugs*

Dear Bluebird,
Is this diagnosis new? Please arm yourself with knowledge....visit the NIMH site (that's . org)
It is part of the illness when they say "everything's fine". Most doctor's appreciate the input of the spouse as caregiver..find one that is savvy.
I have 4 men in my immediate family suffering with bi-polar,ADHD,and social phobias. They fib about their situation because they are embarassed not because they want to hurt anyone.
I found a life coach/counselor helps a great deal. You deserve care too!
You are far from alone in this ...

The dx is not new. Dh had a breakdown over ten years ago.... and ds was dxed almost two years ago. I knew in my heart that was ds's problem..... he was nasty when he was in K....

I blew up at them both last night. I mean I really blew up. IMHO, there is no reason for the way they are acting. They have great doctors and counselors IF they will work with them. Ds even said that I need to spend the entire hour with his counselor with him. I told him NO. This is your illness and you need to learn to handle it. I will be calling the doctor Monday. I am not able to go into ALL of their appts..... but I can call the doctor and I email the counselor a lot too... Ds admitted that he is lying to his couselor all the time. I told both dh and ds that I have two other kids that need a mom. Don't make me choose..... They were much better today. I did tell them both, that they will straighten up OR they will lose their happy home. I will not live like this anymore. I deserve better and so do my other two kids.
