Unhappy Bipolar and my husband is fed up

I have a mild case of bipolar depression and lately I've been so stressed and upset that its getting triggered more often than not. My mood swings are getting worse and all I want to do is cry all the time. My husband is getting fed up with the mood swings and says its giving him whip lash and when I start to cry he tells me to shut the eff up. Don't know what to do...

I am really sorry about your situation, I have been there. It takes a lot of work and willing participants to navigate bp as a couple. I thought we were doomed, but we had a heart to heart or 50 and are continuously making improvements together. I read a book called codependent no more and asked my dr. for help.

I'm sorry your husband is not being supportive. BP is hard for someone who doesn't have to understand. Maybe you could do couples counseling and see if that helps.

I empathize. It is hard to separate your emotions from your partner.

Exactly what are you doing that is affecting him? Surely he's not affected when you go into another room and cry. Thats you dealing with what you need to deal with.

Pretty much my situ has been like Alokin. It's ups and downs but we are still hanging in there, 25 years later, tho sometimes I have my doubts. I usually do feel the love, most of the time, and I wish the same for you! Take care!
