I have done that before.  In my case it was also related to PTSD which is a stress disorder.  Does she happen to have PTSD?

I agree with you on this one Bubulous.
Same with me.

I've done the same thing. My husband will tell me something I said or did, and I can not remember doing that at all

My partner was diagnosed with depression in her 20s. now in her 30s for the last few years I've noticed severe mood swing, anger, throwing things at me. She asks me if I took something and then I find it in the house. When I asked her to be checked for bipolar disorder she asked me if I've been checked. and she wants me to 50% responsible for the problems in the relationship and I cannot do that because I do not do that. I bring problems but normal every day problems. and I can be a ***** during PMS but otherwise I'm pretty what you see is what you get.  Could she have bipolar disease now. Please help me

There is a huge belief that bipolar disorder is related to mood swings and/or anger. It is generally untrue. We have our definitive highs and lows, but it is most certainly not an instantaneous event. My highs last at least 10 days and my lows even longer. So COULD your partner have bipolar. Sure. But that's not what you described here.
