I'm getting married in 3 months, and my fiance is bipolar. He had been doing really well with his meds for almost a year. The holidays is a difficult time for him, because his mother died 4 years ago around christmas. I knew this was going to be a challenge, but I was hopeful we could make it through without a major episode. He recently started a new job and LOVES it! But because of his latest episode, he has missed more then he has gone. I'm terrified he will lose this job, therefore losing his health benefits and not be able to get the help he truly needs now. I don't know what to do to help him. I try to encourage him to get up in the morning and go to work, but he just gets mad at me, and even has blamed me for his not going in. He has been blaming me for everything lately.....I don't think he is taking his lithium 3 times a day like he is suppose to, but everytime I ask him about that, he gets angry. I dont' know what to do.... HELP!!!!
