So, I have borderline personality disorder and bipolar two disorder. It's a relief to know the source of a lot of my issues, but at the same time a huge problem. Because my hubby gets so angry at my symptoms. I want to scream at him and say "I'm working on it! I'm trying! But it's not my fault!" Why can't he just try to understand or help instead of getting angry and yelling at me? I'm already in therapy and on medication and I have a workbook that I'm going through for holistic treatment. But he seems to think that I can just switch it off and be normal and okay. One of my biggest problems is that I'm sensitive to negativity (as I'm sure a lot of us are) so if he's irritated and taking it out on me then I tend to shrink away and become depressed and feel attacked. So then he gets mad at me for feeling that way and yells at me even more. What do I do when the one person I have for support doesn't understand and offers little or no comfort, support, or help?

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
