Very confused right now.
So it has been a year since my husband had a Major Manic Episode, tried to commit suicide, was psychotic and for at least 6 months was NOT himself, totally disconnected form everything.
Back then he left me, moved in with another woman, brought me to court saying I abused our child and the list goes on.
FASTFORWARD to Today!
He seems to be 90% the man I used to know. He talks me okay, he is asking to help him on certain tings (he treated me like a stranger for 7 months).
But here is where I get really confused. If I asked him about this past year, about specific things that he ahs done or said, not to Confront him or to make him feel guilty but to see if he is still on Denial…He says he didn’t do anything wrong, nothing major happen to him, he says the doctors don’t understand what he went through. Even when I’m very specific about the bad choices he made, this woman who he got involved with, she is suffers form Boderline Pers Disor/Agoraphobia etc (the same woman who helped him write Court Papers in which he stated I Hit my daughter). And even now that he moved out of her house (he told his brother many times how unstable she was. But to me he keeps saying she is a Great person.
What is this? Is this just DENIAL, does he feel so embarrassed that it is hard for him to admit these things?
Why does it matter to me? Because I want to be able to trust him again. We have a 3 year old together and deep inside I know he is a good man!
Any feedback?? Thanks.
