Is it possible after all these yrs of living with his bp, that it is turning me bp too?? Recently a question I have asked myself, even though I believe there was already some depression in my family and some in me that has felt like it comes and goes(but not regularly), and not bp by any means. So recently coming to a resolution that things had hit rock bottom and we would part after many yrs(bringing on that mess and stress of dividing up a 23 yr marriage), a new therapist for me has given me some hope of how "I" can turn this around. I desperately want to save my marriage but know it can't go on like "this" any longer. So....now I'm experiencing deep lows and now extreme highs from this new revelation! Did living with his bp, make me bp now? Or did I already have a propensity for it? Will I need meds? Can the therapist be enough?

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...
