I'd like to know from others living with a BP person how they deal with the anger and depression cycle. When the depression is so intense there is nothing the supporter can do but encourage the counseling etc. My husband needs time alone when he gets this way. He'll need it for 2 weeks to 3 months depending on how intense it is. We have three children together (2 teens and one 6 yrs) all girls. When the two older ones were younger it was easy to tell them that dad is staying at his friends for awhile. Now that they are older they are alot more selfish and rebellious. They don't seem to understand that dad doesn't feel good and he needs to spend time away from the house, the noise, the commotion, etc. Have any of you been in this situation where you let your BP person get the time away as I do? If you do, how do you deal with the children so they understand? I wish our house was bigger so that my husband can have his own area but it's not possible.
