I am looking so forward to reading all the advice & stories you have to share. I am having a very hard time right now finding someone to talk to who is or has gone through a manic episode leading to hospitalization. My inlaws have gone throught his before but this is my first episode since our marriage..they are no help..all they do is yell at me..tell me i'm doing everything wrong..they yell at the dr's & nurses..my husband just wants to come home but he is also codependent on marijuana (which i have been told does not mix with BP) so when he comes home for his 4 hour night visit he searches for his stash..i have a 2 year old that cries (usually very adaptable) because she doesn't understand. I have parents that are trying to help but don't understand & are being very patient. I'm scared for him to come home (not because of violence) but because i do not have the strength or will at the moment to help him..i'm so scared..scared to stay & scared to leave..how can i just walk away..i love him but it's so hard..no job for 1 1/2 years..no ambition..stresses when we go away..not helpful at home..will things be like this forever..when we first got together he had so many realistic dreams..now all he wants to do is "make the world happy" & "needs to talk to the president to make this happen"..WHY???? WHY IS THIS HAPPENING..any suggestions..advise..or just chatter would help..

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
