My husband went into rehab for pain med addiction on 1/1/09 and was released on 1/11/09. While in rehab he was diagnosed as being mildly bi polar and depressed. He's been home for two weeks. To make a long story short, he says I am the only trigger in his life. He says that when I'm around he feels anxious, his skin itches, he gets angry, and he can't be around me and be sober. He's asked for a separation. He's totally shut me out of his life. When I ask him what I've done or what he's going to do or for any kind of answer all he can say is "I don't know." I have no idea what to do next. I've been found a marriage counselor who specializes in addiction, but we haven't seen her yet. I'm also trying to encourage him to find an outpatient treatment program. Beyond that I don't know what else to do. I can't separate from this situation and say, oh this is part of recovery it'll get better because I am in so much pain. Never in a million years would I have thought he would tell me these things. When he was in rehab he was talking about how WE were going to deal with it. Now I'm sleeping alone and he acts like I have the plague. What the hell happened?
