My husband was diagnosed about 3 years ago and his symptoms don't fit the norm. He does not have severe mania (never has) but he does stay hypomanic most of the time medicated or not. We have dealt with moderate depression but no suicide attempts although he has felt hopeless at times. I work full time and go to school full time and he collects disability and stays home with our children. It would be ok except that he "forgets" to do housework and sometimes doesn't take care of the kids the way I would. He doesn't do this deliberately I think he just doesn't think about things the way I would. He was never considered to be a "normal" child. His mom describes him as "always being a demanding, self-centered, impulsive person". We are struggling financially and sometimes I wonder why I stay with him and put up with it all. People tell me that I should leave and I keep praying that it will get better. Please give me some advice so that I can feel a little better. No one that I can really talk to at home except my therapist who I only get to see every two months. Thanks.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
