I should clarify...he does have treatment. He just forgot to take his pills and then was off them for a few weeks, because once he misses a few pills then he isn't capable of remembering to take them.
The trouble is that he concealed the spending from me even after he got back on the pills. I'm feeling pretty bad about this.
I know it is a very difficult life and a very painful one at that. Your emotions go up and down and you feel like you are on a roller coaster ride. If you don't have a spiritual director or a counselor, you should get one for your own sanity and peace of mind. I am not sure if my dh has bipolar or not, but he acts as if he does and that is why I say it is a difficutl life and yes it is hard on the kids. It is hard on you. You get depressed and feel that no one understands what you are going through. Phoonie, you are not alone. Please go to Holy Hour as much as possible and pray to Jesus for strength. He is by your side and has been there always. Pray for your dh's healing of his heart and soul. Something happened in his past to cause this. I know with my dh it was child abuse. A priest told me he needs prayers of deliverance. The medications help a lot too. You have to take care of yourself though and have separate bank accounts too.
You are in my prayers, sweetie, and you are never alone. May Our Blessed Mother pray for you during this difficult time.
