They put him on Lithium and I started to think we may make it after all.I started to let my guard down and started trusting him again to be the man I thought I had married.
He hasn’t stopped talking about how he is going to get his new car and how important his job is and what happened that day in painful detail.
I have convinced him to go to a therapy session with me next week (we have not been in over two years), and he thinks the therapist will help me get over my car grudge and let him buy the car.
I pay the bills and am always on edge that another month goes by and the more credit card debt we have. I will let him know we do not have any money after the bills are paid yet it is only my fault since I need a better job.
I ask him to curb big spending and then I get in trouble when I spend $20 at Wal-Mart.
He wants (or has to have) a new car (always a sign), he wants me home at all times, he cringes if my phone rings and it is a friend, I should have the laundry done and cook dinner (things I have really never done since we met), work is too stressful for him, everyone is an idiot, etc.
I looked at the date on his pills and they should have been done weeks ago.
He said last episode that my friends could call him if I couldn’t break through, and now my friend wants to call and he says no way.
We had two golden retrievers who I love more than anything and I know in my heart it was due to them I gave it another shot.
He was diagnosed about 7 or 8 years ago, on meds for a while then we just ignored the problem thinking it would go away. Three years ago I left after a very bad manic episode and he would not seek any professional help.
