I really dont see how you spouses do it. I joined this forum because my birth mother was diagnosed a few weeks after I found her so I have only been dealing with this for a short while. I have lots of distance between us and it still wears me out. I really dont know how you do it day in and day out. She has only had one manic episode and made it through that fairly well, all things considered. She is now in her 3rd week of the depressive cycle and has landed in the hospital psych ward. My heart goes out to those that have been dealing with for years. I am a strong person but I dont know that I could hang in there thru all the ups and downs. I just wanted to say how you are all such special people. God bless you.
