My husband is diagnosed manic depressive, and is not on medication. He is also an alcoholic. He lost a really good job about 5 weeks ago, and has not attempted to find another one since. He has been increasing his drinking as well. About two weeks ago he came into a bunch of money from an inheritance after his grandpa passed away. He took us shopping, bought things for our house..... then two days later he disappeared for 2 1/2 days. He came back with a story of drugs and was apologetic. I knew he had spent his days at a 19 year old strippers house. He swore it was drugs and not cheating. He disappeared again 2 days later.... came home for a day and then left again. He finally confessed to cheating on me, and we decided to work it out and try to get past this. We spent the weekend in a hotel having a romantic time, being intimate, working things out. When we returned home he began a drinking binge with his cousin. They stayed up til 6 am playing video games, slept for 6 hrs and started drinking again. Tuesday morning at 330am I woke up to him on the phone with the stripper telling her he'd be there in 20 min. This was after a great weekend, and even conversations about our upcoming anniversary, and a kiss goodnight. He was totally trashed, but I told him that if he leaves, not to come back. He didn't come back. I know he stayed at his brothers last night, but I haven't heard from him at all. I am wondering if this sounds like a manic episode? Or just a husband gone bad? Any advice or insight that you guys can give me would be very helpful at this point. Thanks.
