Seymour, Tennessee
I have been familiar with bipolar disorder from an early age, as my mother has the disorder, too. We lost my sister to bipolar disorder on April 15, 2005. I am married to a man who also has the disorder, so I know it from both a survivor and a supporter's point of view. I live in Tennessee and... Full Bio

Linda --

I'm glad you're getting something out of my posts.  I also post another one each week at: bipolarsurvivor-michele.blogspot com.  Come check it out!  The one on here is filtered from, the website I write for.  There is a whole lot there for supporters that might help you as well.

re: Your husband, unfortunately we can't change people or tell them what to do.  He is choosing to go the path he's on, and you can't help him.  But you said, "...all I can do is pray."  Linda, never underestimate the power of prayer.  God can go where we cannot.  I love the expression "With God all things are possible."  I even have a sign with that on it right by my computer so I see it all the time.  I know it may be hard for you to let go of your husband, and it may be painful knowiing some of what he's going through.  But you need to keep your own sense of balance and well-being, too.

I hope this helps.

Blessings, Michele
