Hi everyone…..new here. I’m 45 years old. My wife is 44 years old. She was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in her early 20’s. We’ve been married since early 2012, together since 2010. I’m struggling to hold onto her. I’ve joined this forum for help. She recently left me (again), and I’m never sure if it will be permanent or not. It’s all very confusing to me, since I do not have any mental illness (particularly bipolar disorder) in my family. Some of my family members are lightly nudging me to finally throw in the towel……however, I still do not want to. No specific questions right now…..just glad to be here and trying to deal with the recent events, emotionally……not knowing where she is, etc. Thanks.
