I am in need of a bit of insight into Borderline
I am in need of a bit of insight into Borderline Personality Disorder. Or Bi-Polar Manic Schisoeffective. Ok probably did not spell that right. My wife is having problems. She was Diagnosed with the Bipolar Manic Schisoeffective. But she believe that she may be the Borderline Personality Disorder. Now My question here is... When she has these episodes of extreme anger and refuses to talk to me and demands that our relationship is over, How long can one of these episodes last? Is this common for these disorders? We have been married for 20 yrs. thru our marriage she has had these episodes about every 3-4 yrs. But lately it has been every 2-3 months. She has been lying a lot lately also. About simple things that realy don't matter. She gets mad a me for what I assume is no reason and then doesn't talk to me for 3 days or so but in that period will post hatful messages to me on Facebook. I am trying to hold on and do my best to keep her happy but nothing seems to work. any insight here would be great.
She has been diagnosed Bipolar Manic Schitsoeffective. She has now moved in with another man. This is the first time this has happened in our 20 yr marriage. She is not taking her medication. She is not happy with the guy she is with. You can see it plain as day. Infact the guy told me himself that she was not happy. but in one sentence she will tell me she never wants to see me again but then whisper to me that I need to be ready to come get her at a moments notice. The man she is staying with has a history of beating woman. She knows this and you can tell she is not happy there but she still chooses to stay there instead of comming home to her husband and children. just yesterday i took kids to see her. she was standing at back of car and told children that she could not explain what was going on but to please be ready to come get her.
