I have been with my husband for over 7 years, going, have two children and within one week he was a stranger to me. He went to the hospital for over a week and now they say he has this disease. They put him on medication and it helped and now he's being very cold and distant all over again, he snaps at me constantly, doesn't want to play with the kids and I don't know what to do. I feel so lost and just need to know what to do as far as how I feel. I didn't believe the bipolar diagnosis and now after he went on this medication and after his one "week" of his mind temporary being lost, I am starting to believe it, but where do I go from here I don't know him anymore and it's breaking my heart. I just want some advise from someone who has been there and if it gets any better?View Thread
yes, I will def call them in the morning, but I might have worded it wrong, my husband, his phycotherapist, a nurse at the hospital have all tried calling for weeks on end, sometimes every day, still no response. I guess I'm still in such shock about this, I just want my loving husband and father to our two beautiful baby boys back:(View Thread
Thank you for replying, this is all new to us, I am going on 6 years of marriage, 7 years of living together and within one week, a little bit before Halloween, he totally snapped, he was a different person. So, he has not been on the meds very long, but I did see an improvement right away, within days of him being home from the hospital. I went to an appointment with him with his phycotherapist, and the they're trying to get him to see a phycharistrist (sorry for my spelling), anyway it's taking forever for him to get in, it's been weeks now and no phone calls back, they are the only ones that can adjust his meds. He is just so distant and cold, that's not like him. I just feel so lost and that is why I am on this forum, just to see what to do and how to feel about this, cause he doesn't discuss anything with me and it's so hard being in the dark all the time. Thanks for your encouraging words.,View Thread
