    Hi,

    im 41 and have been having a tough time with my husband. He was diagnosed with bipolar a couple of years back. I’ve had my own mental health issues with depression but have been managing quite well for the last year with the help of my gp and a therapist (after my husband pushed me to get help).
    I love him but there are times when he makes it so difficult for me too. We have been together for 8 years and have a 3 yr old.
    It’s a constant rollercoaster and can be so exhausting. I guess what I’m looking for is help/ advice on managing the bipolar as well as somewhere I can vent once in awhile:) I don’t talk about him or what he’s like with anyone and it’s getting to the point where I feel frustrated all the time cause I’m just holding it all in.

    Hi and well done for posting... If you go down ten forums you will find the Supporting family members who care for those with a mental illness!!! I may have gotten the name a bit wrong but It is number 10 down the lists of forums. Good luck and I hope this helps.
