Having a mental breakdown
I think I am having a mental breakdown. Dh has bipolar, has not been himself lately and he won't talk to me about it. What he will do is seize on a small comment or thing that I said and twist it, pouting and sniping at me until I cry or get angry Then he wants an apology. When I apologize, he says he doesn't believe I am sincere and that I am being manipulative. I can't even figure out why we are fighting in the first place. It feels like he is emotionally detached and just wanting me to suffer. This can go on for hours on the weekends.
When I am very upset, I sometimes hurt myself in a small way to release the pain I feel. Right now I am locked in the bathroom, trying not to want to do that. I haven't done that since I was a teenager, dealing with my psychotic mother.
I am worried about him, but also worried about him being able to manipulate me into feeling this awful. When he is taking his meds he is not like this. I think I should try to get him to see a doctor or therapist. What do you think? Any advice on dealing with mental health issues would be appreciated.
