Does My Wife Have Bipolar?

Me and my wife, both love each other dearly. But our problem always stems to a sort of PMS or PMDD syndrome, where she fixates on what irritated her(which is really nothing) & blames/nags me about it, then goes to my past & how disappointed she is for marrying me, and makes our lives to a point of being miserable, without any solution but separation. I know I could easily blame PMS for this,...

I Do Not Know if I Am Just a Hormonal Teenager or if There is Something Wrong with Me

I keep having weird times (that do not correspond with my period) where I am really happy, alternating with times where I think I am worthless and do not want to do anything but sleep or isolate myself.

Considering Leaving Bipolar Husband

My husband was diagnosed with PTSD (not military-related) and bipolar disorder approx. 5 years ago. In retrospect, many of his problems pre-date our 20-year relationship; some used to seem like quirks or immaturity, or he would find ways to justify them. These days, I barely recognize him. He only socializes with select people and keeps them meticulously separate. He spends his evenings in our basement tinkering, avoids me and becomes obsessed with “projects.” Conversations...
