I feel my wife is bipolar. She is undiagnoised but she told me she was after researching it on the internet. She has been on and off antidepressants for years. For the most part, they helped. Recently she was actively seeking a psychiatrist. She stopped. She now thinks she is ADD and she is taking Straterra. It seems to me this drug is all wrong for her. It is helping her focus but she focuses on all the bad things that have gone wrong with our marriage. She has us in serious financial difficulties. I have enabled her. She wants a divorce for the 3rd time since April 2009. I am struggling with the mood swings. I believe she is in the middle of a mixed episode. I have tried to encourage her to get help. Just two weeks ago she loved me and now she tells me she hates me. I know I have said some things I shouldn't have. I am frustrated. My three children and I are suffering. My wife is suffering too. We are actually going to therapy together. This therapist has seen both of us individually. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?of us individually. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

I spent six weeks in the hospital following my overdose. I’m heading home now. I quit my job and will be going to intensive outpatient program. I’m just happy to be going back to my family. I missed them dearly
I remember how much I thought I had bipolar, I honestly still go happy sad happy sad happy sad every once in a while, not even realizing I’m doing it half the time. It runs pretty bad in our family, just any mental illnesses, really. My parents both take medicine, my mom’s bipolar and so is her dad, my grandfather. Things like that. I remember telling the doctor how my mood would go like that...
