Does anyone else on here have a spouse that has been unsupportive,and how did you convince them that bp is not an EXCUSE for what you've done to them but a reason? How long did it take for things to get back to "loving"? Or did it ever? I am starting to see that I might just have to let him go...but i sure don't want to. I'm like that..i'm not a quitter. And i take my vows very seriously.

" I would try to get him to go to counseling with you. Another good book that might help him is "Loving Someone with Bipolar Disorder" by Julie Fast. I wish you both luck. Its not easy to maintain a relationship with the stress of this disease. "

" I have been to hell and back with my husband...I have done some horribe things to myself and to him...
I dont believe that BP was the excuse or a reason in a nutshell they add up to the same thing...Its time to be an adult stop worrying about him and prove to him that you are working to making yourself a better person...
My husband left me several times and each time it devestated my Life...Until the last time I was so over everything that I told him to go and go he did...I needed the time to prove to myself that I was still the same person that I was when I met him at the ageof 16 but I had matured...It took him 6 months to see that I had chaned alot, I was stable, I could be by myself and there were no wild temper tantrums...In the end it was him that wanted the relationship back and I didnt...But he wooed me all over again and we got back together...We are happier now than ever as well as more in love...He now sees me as an equal not someone he can rescue, save or help...
