I met my wife online 3 months before we got married. We dated for 2 months and fell in love faster than either of us could ever imagine. She was married before, had 2 kids (that I love to death), and got divorced. I could never get a clear answer out of why they got divorced, and why her kids lived at her parents' house. We told each other every deep secret. She told me that she was Bipolar. Not knowing anything about it. I told my family to let them know. She got very upset at me for telling someone that she was Bipolar. A week later was the day our wedding was set for. We got married. She doesn't have a job so I bought her a house that her parents had been letting her live in until she could afford to start making payments. A few weeks after buying the house and getting settled in we moved the kids in. It seemed that a switch flicked about a week after our amazing kids moved back. She started getting angry with every little thing the kids and I would do. It is like we can never do anything right. She went on a new med for about a month and gained about 40-60lbs. She stopped taking the meds, because of the weight gain. She got us a membership at the health club, and started taking diet pills. She worked out maybe 2-3 times and decided she didn't like it. I have been going every day to show her how much better one feels after working out. That seems to make her very angry. Three nights ago, she drank enough to want to finally have sex. A mixture of not feeling loved by her at all, and a medication I am on to stop seizures I could not keep it up long enough to finish. She got very upset, stormed off and started yelling at me saying it was because she was fat. I kept assuring her that it wasn't. I called the doctor the next day and found out every man he prescribed the med to is having the same effect. The next night we went out to her grandmas to play cards. I didn't smoke at all the whole time we were out there. I told her grandma I was quieting/quite, and only take drags of hers. The next day (yesterday) she seemed very agitated all day. After asking her throughout the day what was bothering her. I got out of her that it bothers her that I look for a compliment, or encouragement. She said she hates help that like encouragement. She stormed off and wouldn't talk to me the rest of the day/night. Here it is 12:20pm the next day and the only words I have heard from her are stop looking at me and I want a diverse. I am doing everything I can I keep my patience, keep the girls quite so she can sleep, pray for her, give her anything she wants, and love her with all my heart. She really is a great person that I do love more than anything. How can I keep encourage the girls it isn't their fault that mom is angry every day? What can I do to make her happier? Is this a normal Bipolar thing? I feel like I have to walk on egg shells all the time, and that it is my fault that she isn't happy. How do I make it better?
