HI! i'm new to this sight. I don't know where to start so lets just do it. My wife is bi-polar and I've been dealing with it for a long time now. I have tried to understand that it's an illness and took it in to consideration with everything that comes along with being the spouse of someone who is bi-polar though it has not been easy. I have dealt with alot of different issues with her including the cheating and we have worked thru it. Recently I have found out that she has been cheating on me again for a little over a year. I see the cycle happening all over again. She tells me she does'nt want to be with me anymore and that I deserve someone better than her,( same ole, same ole),I can see rite thru the wall. I know she loves me with all her heart cause I know who the true her is when she is not stuck in her highs. She is on Lithium but not getting the counseling she needs to go with it. I don't know what else to do anymore. I'm hurt, angry and confused. You would think that a person would get used to it after so many years but you don't. How do you let go of your soulmate and hand off to this god forsaken disease. There's nothing I would'nt do for her but I don't think I can accept this anymore. We have been together for 20yrs. and married for 141/2 yrs. thats a long time to throw away but I don't know how to go on from here anymore. My biggest fear is that I won't be there for her when she crashes back down to earth. I'm the only one that has ever been there for her and it would kill me if she ever hurt herself

I ran out of lamictal last night and have been working on getting a refill for a couple of days, but the dr’s office isn’t responding. I’m on 300 mg and I’m already sweating and shaking from missing one dose. What should I do? Are the side effects of quitting or missing pills cold turkey really bad?
I have been diagnosed with depression, generalized anxiety disorder and social anxiety disorder, but my doctor said that there is a possibility that I could have bipolar, but I have never been tested/diagnosed. The reason I decided to join this group is because I think I do have bipolar. I could be great one minute and the next minute I feel like crying. Otherwise I feel like crying hysterically...
