My ex (not yet divorced) and I currently have 50/50 temp custody of our two small children. He has told so many lies about me and/or manipulated them in such a way as to turn them against me. It has been 5 months and at least they do not have as many anger outbursts toward me as they did. They are in therapy which is working a bit. But what really gets me is that when they are with their Dad (which right now is for 5 days straight) they do not answer my phone calls or call me. I therefore do not speak w/ them for 5 days straight. Their father just writes me very long emails on how they don't want to talk to me even though he tells them to. I just don't believe it or understand it. I ask they children why they don't call me or pick up the phone, my 11 year old son tells me he doesn't want to talk to me and my 7 year old daughter just says "I don't know". My ex is a narcisstic human being who has been diagnosed w/ BiPolar Disorder and does not take Meds. Has anyone else experienced this? I am considering a psychological eval, but they would evaluate the entire family and it could take 6 months and about 10K. Any advice? Missing my children!

My ENT sent me for more tests last week...one where they had me lie back in a chair, with blacked out goggles on so I couldn't see while they administered water into my ears one at a time ( first warm, then room-tempurature, then cold) while they video taped my eyes and asked me questions to determine how cognizant I was... This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
