My husband is biopolar and I have epilepsy so I can understand how you feel in a lot of ways. You guys have been marrie for over 11 years where as though we have been married only a few months but the way we work things out is by taking time to think and pray we later talk about it . No it doesnt always take a few hours sometimes it takes day because we have to be careful of what we say and do. We grew up together as kids and were both 27 so yeah we have some years to go but through all things God has always been there for us

If she hasn't been to any of your Dr. Appts , you may want to get her involve. If there are ever any Epilepsy coferences in your area in the U.K. , you might want to try that too. It may help her understand more. At least I hope so.

Good luck and hope you get things straightened out with her.

That's a hard one to answer, because people will believe what they want to believe.
