My husband is a member of this support group and he wanted me to join to get a better insight of his illness. I must admit that he has posted some things on here that have upset me very much. That being said....we have been together now for almost 10 years now. I knew when we met that he had this illness and later on we discovered that I suffered from depression, anxiety, bipolar(?) and recently BPD. We have managed to stay together for this whole time. This past year we hit a very rough patch and are still trying to get through it. I genuinely feel bad for him for feeling (real or perceived) that people are out to get him. This must be a living nightmare. I want him to know that I am trying to support him in this to the best of my ability. We are going to seek counseling together to try to get through this. I want to stay with him forever because I love him very much and never want to be without him. Life without him would have no meaning. I know that other people will be reading this but since this is anonymous (?) and he wanted me to join this group, I wanted him to know that I am trying to understand his illness and want to be with him no matter what. I love him very much!
