Hi! I just joined this group. I am looking for advice on how to handle and talk to a loved one who has been very erratic for the last 1.5 months. We had been going to therapy together to work on trust & communication issues and out of the blue 1.5 months ago he started accusing me of cheating on him, seeing messages that weren't real on my phone, hearing things that didn't happen. His mood swings are fast and erratic, one minute wanting to do 5 major things in a day the next unable to get out of bed all day and saying he wishes he could die. He fluctuates from being angry, verbally aggressive, to sad, to loving, back to angry etc etc multiple times in one day. He constantly says it's me, I have the problem, I am the problem, there is nothing wrong with him etc etc. I don't know how to talk to him and address what is going on. I tell him I am extremely worried about him and that it might be good to get a basic health check up on vitamin levels etc. He is extremely paranoid of being brainwashed & poisoned as well as recently for the last few weeks expressing that he thinks I want to cause him physical harm. He can't sleep at night because he is consumed with nightmares about me trying to killing him or cheating on him. I talked to my therapist about all of this and her reply was that it sounded like he might have Bipolar I and was in a manic episode. I have been doing a lot of reading and it seems like he might have the rapid cycling. Since he now believes I have cheated on him and want to cause him physical harm, he has no trust with me and anything I say or suggestions I offer. I really worried about him and need advice on when & how to talk to him about what is going on, how do approach this? Thank you.
Mom and I went on a mission today. We hit up seven dollar stores looking for pieces to make a fairy garden. This one is mine though dad called it a fairy farm not a garden due to the multitude of animals.
Hi - My therapist recommended this book. Thoughts?
