When Do You Say "Enough is Enough"?

By August 12, 2013

Follow me on:

Ann insisted her husband see a psychiatrist when she discovered he was putting tape recorders in the house to catch her sleeping with other men. But after being diagnosed with Bipolar 1 Disorder, he started drinking again. Sure, he had excuses for his drinking, but what he told Ann the psychiatrist had said about it sounded suspicious. Had he really mentioned it at all during his appointment?

His behavior, Ann said, was damaging an "already fragile family life," and she didn't know what to do. When, she asked, is it time to say "enough is enough"?

When Ann emailed her story to me, I didn't have an answer for her, and she finally found her own solution. But this situation comes up all the time for people who have family members with bipolar disorder that's out of control and who aren't making any effort to help themselves. Share what you think about any situation where a family relationship is seriously disrupted by bipolar disorder. When do you say, "Enough is enough"? Read Ann's story and see what others have said.
