I am married to the most wonderful woman in the world, I love her dearly and would do anything to please her.
However, at times when she decides to stop taking her SZ medication (as is the current situation), she becomes a completely “different” person and hates me for various supposed grievances that are not real - things like I’m having an affair (i’m not), treating her badly (I don’t believe I am) and failing to “communicate” which as I understand it is the opportunity for me to start conversations with her whilst she stares at me until I do.
I find these times really hard. I work all day and have a long commute. It’s hard but I do it so I can afford to support my wife who is currently not well enough to work. When I come home after a hard day/week/month and in the couple of hours before I collapse through tiredness I’m under intense pressure to try and amend my wrongful ways in her eyes. I can’t seem to convince her I love her and many of the accusations she is levelling against me are either simply not true or huge distortions of time and events.
I don’t drink to excess, smoke, gamble or partake in violence towards her and just don’t know what I am doing wrong. I would hate to see our relationship fail and I know we can be very happy when she is balanced but I’m starting to lose sight of the light at the end of the tunnel.
Does it get easier?
