My husband was diagnosed 3 months ago w Bipolar Disorder after tying to commit suicide. Has been on Depakote for 2 months and Risperdol for 1 month (he is still is very psychotic right now).
Up until now we had 12 beautiful, loving years of marriage (and we have 2 year old). And all of a sudden The World comes Crashing down on me!
What puzzles me is that all his anger and frustration s are directed to me. He says he wasted 12 years of his life with me, he has all these weird ideas of things that I have done to me. And what makes me confused is that he can be completely Nice to everyone else!
He told me he has separated from me and he decided to move out of the house 4 weeks ago.
thank God a have a wonderful family and a competent psychologist to keep me above water, but it's very difficult at times to understand/ believe that that Wonderful, funny , loving man has disappeared and now all I can see is this 'monster' in front of me who hates me!
And I did question with his Psychiatrist why the meds. are taking so long to work (specially because he still shows psychotic symptoms...)
Anyone, any advice, do you or a loved one is going through something similar...WHY IS IT THAT THEY TENDT TO 'HURT' THE PERSON THEY LOVE THE MOST!
