My husband has just been diagnosed (finally) with bipolar disorder. He is getting harder and harder to live with and I don't know how much more of this I can take without it eroding my self. He started trying to get treatment right before our daughter was born but nothing really seemed to help (Celexa, less stress, ets). Now his doctor thinks he is bipolar and he is starting lithium tomorrow. I can't handle the lack of affection and motivation he has and it feels like everything is on my shoulders, but I'm not allowed to break cause if I do, who will there be left? I can only do this for so long. Does anyone have any advice to make it easier for him while still making myself feel good too?
