    Wow my husband is on a high today. Woken up in a good mood. It was like having him back in my life. He even told me I look fabulous! Can’t help but wonder how long this will last and if we will both come back from work tonight to a very different mood. Crashes so easily again. Such a roller-coaster of emotions.
    hey ho, been on it a while now so I guess I will just enjoy this morning and see how we go. We have had months with him happy before so fingers crossed.
    Glad to have found The RockPool though, nice to be able to just dump this stuff and share it!

    Hi Rach99 …I know exactly what you mean. It’s wonderful that they’re back, but in the back of your mind you’re just waiting. Try to take time to enjoy the good times when they come. Take stock and look how far you’ve come x

    Oh I know this one so well!
    It’s like you can’t quite trust it. I agree with Lucy, try and take the time to enjoy it. Let it give you energy and have a fabulous time reconnecting with your husband. It will give you strength if/when his mood does shift.

    #Rach99 I know what you mean. I see this in my sister. It’s great when they are with you but you feel on the edge all the time as you wonder how long it will last. Is your husband still on a high? My sister is more low than high. I wish we could switch that.

    Enjoy it! We all have our highs and lows. People suffering are just turned up a few notches and as the closes people to them, unfortunately we feel the brunt of it ๐Ÿ™

    Like I say, enjoy the good times though, and just believe they will always come back to you xxx

    So he is down again. I don’t know why, lasted a little while then out of the blue he goes into his grey cloud again. Hardest bit, for me, is not understanding why. Did I do something wrong, did I miss something, did I say something, not say something. I just have to wait until he comes back up a bit before I can talk to him about it. In the meantime here I am. ๐Ÿ™

    Oh…I feel you!

    I know it’s such a terrible cliche, “It’s not you. It’s me.”…but this is when it really IS true!!

    You haven’t done anything wrong. Nor could you do anything to stop it from happening. It isn’t in your power.

    In the meantime, look after yourself as much as you can and remember that we’re all here waiting for you.

    Sending you strength and love x

    I wish it would feel like it isn’t me. It’s so hard not to take it personally. It’s also so confusing when one minute your husband tells you, you look fab and then the next he can’t even look at me in the face when talking to me. That’s when he does actually talk to me.
    I come home and he just blanks me, how can someone who loves you blank you, I don’t get it!

    My partner has depression and I get the same thing. I work all day with computers, with very little face to face time with other people so when I get home it would be good to have a conversation and talk about my day at least. Often I get nothing. It’s especially hard when I’ve developed something I want to talk about and share. Would be nice to know my partner is proud of me. Just sometimes. Trouble is we have to focus on them.

    I know what you mean…it can zap all your energy looking after your partner. There’s nothing left for you at the end of the day!

    I’m sure your partner is proud of you and all that you’re doing. More than that, I bet your partner appreciates you more than you know. You their rock after all!

    We’re always here for you.

    It’s difficult to be grateful when faced with a husband on a low, find it easier when he is on a high to be honest. Right now I’m grateful for my glass of wine!

    So having just had my wine! Iโ€™m feeling this at the moment, Richards in a really great mood. I feel like I have my husband back, thing is I know he is still on medication so Iโ€™m asking myself if itโ€™s real and will it last? It leaves you feeling so uncertain, nervous and vulnerable.
