I suspect my wife(nurse) is bipolar, if diagnose, could this affect her license/job
My wife has been a nurse for 8 years, and a very good one, from what I hear...3.9 just finished her Bachelor of Nursing..

I suspect she is bipolar, these symptons only been directed towards me...We are under much stress for the past 6 with our firstborn become diability at 4 months of age, another story...point is you can imagine worse case scenrio for a disability child...

I am sure it runs on her mothers side, oh my gosh another story, and no symptoms until the repeated stress from our firstborn..not faulting my firstborn son...

She is starting to admit something is wrong...so i have to take her to the doctor and talk about her condition, only if I tell the doctor I have anger issues...Fine i will play her game, if it gets her to the docotr, so be it...

MY QUESTION, could this affect her nursing license in any way, if she is diagnosed bipolar..i suspect mania bipolar, my opinion the worse kind..becuase it will hit after a high note, and it comes like a roaring freight train,,,and next day she acts like nothing happened...

i need her diagnosed and properly monitered, so I can continue to concentrate on my 6 year old and my 2 year old...

Please help with any advice, I have no help from family and have been doing this nonstop for the past 6 years..and thank God I am somewhat still intact..except the part about me posting this on GLP..5a...HELP.

you are in a hard spot op.
yes definitely get the diagnosis.
you can also take a short online test, that may give an indication. things to look for are risky behaviour, severe mood swings, shopaholic tendencies etc.
here is one:

there is no reason why your wife's employer needs to know, is there? as long as her work performance is not suffering.
it would be hard on the kids though. and you. and your wife. you both should go to counselling.

It is tough living with bipolar...I know.

Concentrate on your child and getting your wife the help she needs.

Don't worry about her employer. By the way, she is a brilliant woman.

yeah tell me about, it is a hard spot...but no matter what, I need to stay with her, so we can keep our family intact, for the sake of my disability.
and now my two year old, will need both of us, mainly me to help him understand...
My disability son needs me, because i have been his only caregiver, I have taken him to mexico, cartel country, for stem cell treatments to stop seizures.i had to do that alone.yes she is a nurse, but she is in LOLA LAND when it comes to caring for him..and think she blocks out most of reality when with him, and i understand that...

i already looked through some of the symptoms, will do your link right after this...and she is no doubt in my mind bipolar...I have many instances, SEVERE SEVER mood swings, yes goes has her moments of spending, uncontroled eye movement, when stressed....and next day, everything is fine..while i am sitting here, saying to myself, was she not a crazy lady yesterday??

and i am worried her employer may find out about her diagnose, of course we would not mention..but is there special cicumstances for being a nurse, and making sure they do not hire crazys...

although it does not affect her job performance, she focuses different when it comes to work...

hmm, yes she has her brilliant moments, mostly goal oriented...but when shit is about to hit the fan, boy, does it splatter everywhere and mostly right in my face..

i would just hate for me to push her to see the doctor, understanding bipolar gets worse if untreated, and i have seen this happening...i would hate for her employer to find out, and knowing I pushed the issue...and her job status in jeopardy...

Thanks ladies for the response, really I appreciate this....

Something with bipolar you should understand is random sexual promiscuity.
Most likely she has already cheated on you and will again.

OP...it sounds like something is amiss. If she is lithium responsive and WILL TAKE IT..her life will improve out of sight..."going like a bomb" was an expression I heard. So, I hope she can find a GP or Psychiatrist she can bond with and accept her condition, her life will improve greatly.

Please be aware, that if she IS bi-polar a part of the condition is it can take up to 20 years for the sufferer to accept the diagnosis and her own insights.

So...it would be best, for her to accept the diagnosis early, if it is in fact bi-polar and save herself, and others, a lifetime of misery.

My prayers and best wishes to you both.

Did she recently start (or suddenly stop) any medication, such as anti depressants.

If your son is chronically ill, are you both part of a support group for his illness?

You mention you are seeking alternative treatments for his illness. Does she think this is pointless and are there conflicts, say, over your inability to accept what she perceives as the reality of your child's disease?

[link to www.webmd.com]

"Bipolar Myth No. 8: Aside from taking medication and engaging in psychotherapy or "talk therapy," a person with bipolar disorder has few options for controlling the condition.

Not true. "Medication and therapy are important," says Ken Duckworth, MD, medical director of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. But paying attention to lifestyle can help, too, he says.

"Active" strategies, such as getting regular aerobic exercise, keeping a regular bedtime, eating a healthful diet, and paying attention to personal warning signs that a shift to depression or mania is coming can all help a person manage bipolar disorder, he tells WebMD.

"If people know their warning signs, they can stave off disaster," Duckworth says. For instance: If a person with bipolar knows he starts to wake up at 4 a.m. when he is shifting to mania, he can pay attention to that pattern, Duckworth says, and promptly seek medical help"

You mention you are seeking alternative treatments for his illness. Does she think this is pointless she did at the moment, but has seen results, it is a struggle when convincing, even after the fact, i can manage that..so far..

and are there conflicts, say, over your inability to accept what she perceives as the reality of your child's disease?

My girlfriend was diagnosed as bipolar after we had been together already for 4-5 years. It's been rough all this time since and daily I struggle to decide to stay or leave her.

Sorry to hear your married this makes it alot harder. Good luck, just inform yourself the best you can and don't take the emotional bait.

As for her work shouldn't jeopardize it. Just make sure she gets to the right people to get meds if they determine she needs it or she'll get all wonky off them. Helps stabilize things a lot.

8 years in and I'm still sane with a bipolar girlfriend. Good luck friend

It will only affect her license if the Board of Nursing deems her unsafe to care for patients. There would have to be a specific complaint, and even it the Board took action, they would probably put her on probation and let her work in a less stressful job while getting treatment.
