My husband does not seem to take interest in my disorder. He only uses it as an excuse to get off of work when I'm feeling fine and nothing is wrong. Now his boss knows I have b.d. and I don't know how I can ever face her again. Also, he invited himself along to my psychiatrist appointment and acted like he knew more about me than I do. He said I have been irritable the past two days. If I have been short with him it is only because he is constantly complaining about every action I take. If I answer the phone, he complains. If I go to the radio station to help out someone, he complains. If we have to go to the store, he complains. So yes, was I irratable? I think I hid it fairly well, but then again maybe not. So now my psychiatrist is hearing I'm irritable and is attributing it to my disorder, when in actuality I have every right to feel this way. I don't appreciate it being thought of as a chemical imbalance when it is completely legitimate. I considered his comments to my psychiatrist to be a power play. He doesn't understand how his few words can affect me. Then after my appointment, he asked me if I was glad he went along. Then I was "irritable."
