Some folks are nasty people, some even have a personality disorder, which may cause more problems to other people than to themselves. And the problems they have and those they cause are generally worsened by the arrival of most illnesses, including potentially Bipolar Disorder - but having any such disorder is no excuse for being unpleasant or cruel to anyone else.
Some meds may cause disinhibition or increased aggressiveness, so discuss these concerns with the psychiatrist who is treating her ( Bipolar Disorder should NEVER be treated by a GP alone ).

If i didn''t know better i would think this isn''t a " concerned wife"  writing this but actually my husband - and if it is then shame on you and trust you to make this all about how hard this is for you! and trust you to make yourself the victim here! you ought to be ashamed of yourself, and isn''t it strange how you only recognise bipolar when it suits you???? up until now its just been ''my excuse to get attention'' but since i told you to get your act together or im leaving because you refuse to understand what im going through or how hard im battling to keep it together for you and the girls, now suddenly its becomming real to you???? SHAME ON YOU WJC!!!!!
