I am the one with bipolar and AM treating it. My meds do a pretty good job most of the time. I'm sure I am not always a pleasure to live with but I pretty much do everything around the house. I homeschool the 3 kids. Sub 1 day a week and take everybody where they need to go etc. I know my triggers are stress and lack of sleep. My husband, even after many conversations, expects me to stay up late (11:30p.m.) and be up by 6 am with him in the mornings (not enough sleep for me) and has recently been complaining that my financial contribution to the family is too small. anything that goes wrong or any time I get upset or slightly raise my voice gets blamed on me being a "psycho" and it is dragging me down. discussions are fruitless! He thinks meds should make me "normal" all the time. There is professional agreement that he has narsicistic personality disorder (not admitted by him and not treated). leaving is not an option at this point. How do you deal with people who just don't get it and won't work with you to keep healthy?
