Hi, I want to learn more about what my husband is going through in his recovery. I live with a man with lots of moods swings. He is part of NA and he has a sponsor but I don't see the change in him through his recovery. He has been clean for 2 years now and still has not learned how to acted appropriately. We been married a year now and there is times that I have to leave the house because he is a real pain in the neck. I would use the other word but it's not appropriate. He also is Bipolar and so there is times I get the two mixed up. Is he having a bad day or is his bipolar kicking in. He doesn't handle stress very easily. So he takes his frustrations out on us at home when really he needs to be calling his sponsor and talking to him. We just recently had a baby so yeah the house is a little stressed from the baby crying and the other two kids not listening but that is no reason to take his crap out on us. He can go away for a few hours and deal with it and come back in a better mood. He doesn't do that he will some times keep it all bottled up until he can't take it no more and he ends up letting it out on us. I need to understand what he is going through in his recovery. Any body like to comment on this.

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...
