My wife has been suffering from bipolar disorder for much of the 18 years we have been married. She has been stable until about 2 months ago. Every time she has an "episode" she will say that she is not happy in the marriage as wants to move out. I can usually talk her out of it but this last time was unable to and she moved to an apartment 2 months ago. We see each other and talk almost daily. At one time she really wanted to move back but now says she is not. It depends on what week or even day you ask her. She changes her moods and mind at the drop of a hat. During this whole separation there have been times when she really misses me and wants to see me then others when she doesn't. Yesterday she got very upset with me over a simple misunderstanding, said alot of very hurtful things including that our marriage is over. I know alot of what she said was the bipolar talking but I can't help but be crushed. I'm hoping someone out there has been in a similar situation and can help with advice and/or encouragement. We have 2 children 17 and 12. I love my wife with all my heart and would do anything to have her move back. We have weathered so many storms over the past 18 years, and I am hoping and praying we can get through this but she seems so irrational right now. Also the bipolar has caused her to lose her job about 2 weeks ago.
