My husband is seeing a doctor to be diagnosed as bipolar. It has gotten to the point where I don\'t know what else I can do. I am trying to be understanding that everything he may be doing is due to the illness, but it hurts me so much. He has had previous affairs in the past and is now having an emotional affair with another married woman. He did not count on me finding out about the other woman, but I did. Now, even though he knows my feelings on her, he is still in constant communication with her. They call, text, and email all the time. I have asked if there is anything emotional there and he tells me they are just friends now. I just don\'t see how that can be. They both had such strong feelings for each other. Enough to ruin both their marriages. We are starting to see a doctor, but I just don\'t know how to cope. I don\'t think he cares how I feel at times. I am trying to learn as much as I can about the disorder, but I have found very little on how to deal with it on a loved ones level. I love him dearly, but how much more can i take.

I would work to get off of my meds altogether. (Years and years of taking meds that don't help have left me frustrated and fairly angry.) Treatment for mental illness is not for the...
