In all seriousness DNCC, this can be a very hard and tough situation to deal with if in fact she is bipolar. My ex of 12 years was and it was an emotional nightmare for me and the kids. In my experience there were 2 stages that made this recognizable on my part, the manic and the depressive. The manic took her up and she would stay awake for days on end, uncontrollable happiness, she thought she was invincible, and was always talking about some great plans to buy a new house or car which we definitely couldn't afford. But in her mind, it was all real. She was insatiable in bed as well. To the point that she propositioned 2 of my closest friends, who fortunately were aware of what was going on.
The depressed side of this was the absolute worst. She would have suicidal thoughts and on 2 occasions acted them out. Sometimes she would cry nonstop for days on end. Nothing that I said or did would change the crying.In this stage she could sleep for days on end too, never getting out of the bed except to go to the bathroom or to get something to eat. She had significant weight gain which compounded the depression further. Be on the lookout for extreme mood changes from one day to the next that are severe, a complete 180.
Almost all mental illness is genetic, so check yours and her family tree for possible connections. My ex's symptoms came almost immediately after the birth of our 2nd child. Turns out my ex mother-in-law (her mother) had the same condition after the birth of her 2nd child and so did her mother's sister after having 2 children. This illness is not curable, but it can be arrested and treated by medication, that's the upside. The downside is the bipolar patient does not want to take the medicine, they are in constant search for the manic stage which is a natural high like no other produced by
the body on its own. Most times it will take another family member to also recognize the changes in your wife to point her towards getting some help and or medication. This can be a life threatening condition, so please observe her moods carefully. If I can help in anyway, just send me a pm.
Words to live by.
I am single and really enjoy my life style. When I had a girlfriend, it seemed like my stress throughout the day was so much higher and I am sure blood pressure spiked every time we had an argument over something dumb. Now I am sure I am much healthier plus I get to do what I want, when I want. Win/win. Life is too short to live it unhappy and searching for ways to please the wife just to get by without fighting.

Is she happy until you take your pants off? If so, I may know the cause of the problem.
"I used to walk up a hill to and from school in my days", says every Clemson student ever.
You should find the dude she's sleeping with and ask if he notices it too.
Damn, some of you sound miserable.

Dated a woman who was bi-polar for 3 years. Once we moved in together and she figured she could just go off the meds. She said she actually missed the highs and lows as opposed to the flat affect the meds gave her. It took about 6 weeks and I told her i was done if she wasnt going to stay on the meds. She refused and happily she did not become my ex-wife.
A few years later after she had moved away she met a great guy and she has been on the meds for 13 years now and they are very happy.
My point is that although you may love her, you can't fix her. If she truly is BP she needs to deal with it. Otherwise, you need to walk off.
And buy that Porsce Sport Utility.
Every female is bipolar ...
You spelled BISEXUAL wrong....
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
Guessing this is not a once a month thing?
Don't try to understand women. Women understand women and they hate each other.

Davidson, I'm also married to a Meredith from PA. She's a Villanova area girl. Got her undergrad at Duke. (still holding that against her) and law degree at USC. Is your wife a lawyer? You may be married to my wife. Bigamy could explain a lot of bi-polar symptoms. Tough to be in 2 households at once. LOL.
I 'll cut the TV down and let you know something tomorrow. We have sex every Wednesday so you would think I could tell but I can't understand a thing she says with that paper bag on her head.
I have the answer to your problem, but I'll have to wait to give it to you. Our IT guy is here working on my computer because it apparently doesn't show pictures. He asked me what the problem was, so I showed him this thread. He said yeah I have an obvious monitor malfunction since this ain't NAM.
unless you've posted pics in the "post pics of your wife/girlfriend" thread, you can KMA.
bumping it up to page 1 for you
Bullcrap, the internet was invented like 25 years ago, are you new to our planet? Apparently you don't know the rules. I'll help:
1. Post about wife, girlfriend, etc. then must post pics. If no pics are posted, then said poster must GTFO.
He's right DNCC. There are the rules.
Thread reminded me of my wife walking in on me blowdrying my junk........told her i was heating her diner
Will try this tonight.
