Hi Everyone. I'm new to this group, so I'll give you the background on my situation: I've been with my husband for 9 years, married for 6. We have a beautiful 4 month old daughter. In the 9 years we've been together, hubby has left me 6 times saying he doesn't love me anymore, he doesn't know why we ever got married, I'm a bad person, etc. Then he comes home and everything is "normal." About 3 years ago, he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and was put on medication and we haven't had any problems or "episodes" since then. A week ago, he told me he fell out of love with me and did not want to be together anymore. He left our home for 4 days but came home after I told him I needed his help with our baby (she was sick). He's been home for a few days and things have gotten soooooo much worse. Now he wants a divorce and he says he has no feelings, he feels empty but does not think that it's a problem. When I walk into a room he looks at me with hatred and looks like I'm the most disgusting person on earth. He says this isn't his bipolar, but a few weeks ago he was completely fine. It was like his feelings turned overnight. I can't talk to him about this because he's so adamant he doesn't have a problem and our friends and family don't want "to take sides" so they treat him like everything is ok, which just makes me look like a fool to him. I just want to shake him and make him see... I wish I could rewind his brain or something. I'm so worried about what this is doing to our baby. I know it's turning me into a basket case. What am I supposed to do? I will do anything to help him and make him better.

hi all, this is my first post. Dealing with severe depression now for the last few weeks after 3or4 months of energy and wonderful creativity. I’m 55 and been labeled bipolar II. Just been back to the psychiatrist and are now trying Lamotrigine and bupropion. Each time now seems worse, if that’s possible. Haven’t worked now for two years (used to be a pilot) I know if I wait long enough...
