The Covid situation really is creating a surge in mental health problems, and causing my wife to really have hard times. I listened to this podcast on it and found it to be very helpful to gain some balance.


And also this other one they did specifically about dealing with Covid. Really good info.


I have been struggling with hot to best give care to my wife, who is Bipolar. It adds to all of the stressors. Rough times.

Just looking for any resource or forum I can find to help me, and her, through it all. So, here I am. Hoping that I can also help you all.

HI mate, welcome to the forums, it's safe here.

I would say just be there for your wife as much as you can (I know you are doing that already). Do you guys like snuggling up and watching movies or TV series on the likes of Netflix or Blu Ray, or dancing to music on Spotify or CD? That may well take her mind off things. Just try to distract her mind I would say.
