Is there anyone else who is not working and completely dependent on their spose? I was told I shouldn't work yet that I need to concentrate on getting better no matter how long it takes. It makes me nervous for my whole life to depend on another person. When I first met my old psychiatrist, she told my husband what to do if he needed to get me commited to a hospital. I was just sitting there. My husband is a good man, but what if he were someone who wanted to get rid of me. This is all very scary because I have no support other than him. No family ties to speak of. I get really scared sometimes even though my husband has assured me that I never have to work again. Then there is the fear of him dying. What would the children and I do then? He said he is going to increase his life insurance, but I'm sure that is just something on his list. I'm just scared. I'm taking my meds. The doc. and husband just tell me I am not ready to work yet and I know they are correct. It is just so scary to be dependent on one person.

hi all, this is my first post. Dealing with severe depression now for the last few weeks after 3or4 months of energy and wonderful creativity. I’m 55 and been labeled bipolar II. Just been back to the psychiatrist and are now trying Lamotrigine and bupropion. Each time now seems worse, if that’s possible. Haven’t worked now for two years (used to be a pilot) I know if I wait long enough...
I've no idea whether this is widely known in the US."Babies exposed to valproate medicines in the womb have a 10% chance of developing physical abnormalities.And they have a four in 10 chance of developing cognitive problems, such as learning disabilities and autism."http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-41324751
