Customer Question
My husband continuously cheats...

My husband continuously cheats on me. We have kids a nice house, great job. Money. He travels a lot. We’ve been married 15 years and both a good looking people. For our entire 15 years he has continuously had inappropriate dialogues with women. Over the the last 6 months he’s slept with 5 women. He travels to the same place. 2 weeks ago I found out. He promised me that he would be faithful and just watch. Then on his last trip he hung out with one of the women. I just discovered that. They just worked out together. I found some texts that said they miss each other. Anyway he has promised once again and has begged for another chance. I want to give it to him, but I can’t take this anymore. Will he ever stop?

Doctor's Assistant: How is your mood? Are you experiencing regular sleep disturbances (e.g. trouble falling asleep, waking up early)?

I’m fine.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Psychologist should know?

No. My husband has been diagnosed bipolar.

I am so sorry you and your husband are struggling in your marriage with these infidelity behaviors on his part. As you have described his history there appears to be an addictive, can't stop, out of control aspect to him. And in fact our brains can be "addicted" to the adrenalin and drama that these sexual behaviors create. Your husband most likely will not be able to stop his behaviors and decisions without getting professional help. And his willingness to get professional help will be an indicator that he does sincerely ***** ***** change and heal the marriage. I am going to attach a questionnaire for him to use to ask himself about his behaviors. Please let me know your thoughts. Linda D., LMSW, CASAC

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
