Not to be coy, but my wife is driving me nuts. She has type II Bipolar disorder and I think Borderline Personality Disorder to some extent. The last few weeks, she has not been sleeping much, been highly irritable and argumentative, and gets me trapped in this circular logic whereby I can neither allow her to vent enough about her frustrations with me (and it's always issues about her hurt/disappointment), or counter-argue with her to convince her of the delusion of her standpoint. It's a no-win situation. After a two and a half hour speech, where I tried to be very patient and listen, she had no less than six crying spells...with weeping and wailing...then took Xanax and went to sleep. She takes no medication, at all, except her Xanax to escape her angst. I slept one hour, now I am full awake and cannot sleep. I just get further dragged into depression. I hate to see her come home...she just wears me out. I feel a panic attack coming on...
