While we were still dating my husband attempted suicide. He is bipolar and at the time he had not told me about his condition. Aside from the fear that he would die I was heartbroken that he had not told me about his condition. He thought if I knew I would leave him.
The fallout from his attempted suicide was huge. He lost his job and his family (having lived with this for years) decided it was too much and shut him out.
I decided to stand by him and learn as much as I could about bipolar and why he tried to kill himself.
Today he is finally living with this condition. We both know that this could happen again, but now we are prepared.
