Split Personality Disorder
I am looking for advice from individuals who have faced similar issues, or know someone who has please.
I think my husband has split personality, or may be bipolar and has finally admitted this after several long years and wants help. He doesn’t want to treat it with medicine, but instead would like to find someone who can get to the root of the problem and try to fix it.
My husband is a sweet man, and I love him dearly. He has moments though very often where he can turn into a very difficult person, and that has taken a toll on our marriage. I have left several times, and we have separated a few times, but each time we always find our way back to eachother because of our love. I refuse to give up because I know the real him and want to believe that I can get that man back. When he’s normal, he’s great, but when he’s having an episode, I want to run. He switches to what seems like a whole different person, sometimes very angry, or anxious, or shuts down completely. He relies on marijuana to calm him, and this seems to help. Sometimes he relies on alcohol though, and that has taken a turn for the worse at times. In the end he needs help and has finally admitted it.
Does anyone have any experience with this with a positive outcome? Like I said he does not want to be medicated, but is open to seeing someone who can actually help him. Does anyone have any recommendations on someone who can help with this? I know I can call help lines and know the numbers, but I am looking for personal experience on what has actually helped and referals please. Thank you and god bless!
