There is no empathy in the manic mind. Walking on egg shells means boundaries are not on place for him. Use this weekend, get yourself together & take care of yourself. Don't worry about him. Hugs to you!!

Bipolar disorder is no excuse for any kind of abuse. If he is abusing you, you need to get away from him. Treatment can help, but only once he gets started. Until then, you need to protect yourself.

Big hugs.

One of the hardest parts is knowing that ANYTHING you may do could be used as a trigger. At times it really does seem all about accepting horrible behavior and accepting that you will always be the person to make sacrifices if you want it to last.

Infidelity in a marriage is never acceptable, bipolar or not. The less boundaries you put up, the more emotional abuse you are allowing yourself to take. I hope that you will seek couple's therapy and individual therapy for yourself if you intend to save your marriage. You may not be able to control her behavior but you do control your actions, how you react and how much you will take and be subjected to. Best of luck to you, it is a hard thing to got through. Be strong.

My opinion is that if ANYTHING you do might be a trigger, you need to get out of this relationship. A person CANNOT be a trigger. That is BS.
