I finally got help

Postby cvoor » Sat Jun 30, 2018 1:07 am

My mental illness has caused me and others a lot of grief in my life, I lost relationships, marriages, I had a horrible temper, jealous, insecure, rages. The one thing I remember clearly was when my last husband, came into the room, and I was doing something in the closet, and I just screamed at him, and he looked at me, and said, you are a mean woman, and walked out. Next day he told me he did not love me anymore, and wanted a divorce. It just killed me because I loved him, even his friends thought I was a bitch, and I was . I moved bk to texas, got a job, got my own place. A couple yrs later, met a really nice good looking guy, and I started getting jealous, suspicious, anger spurts, I knew if I didn't get help I would lose this relationship, like all the others, and went to a good psychiatrist , and was put on so many different meds, until we found a combo that has been working for me. Now I'm a different person, the insecurity is gone, happy, patient, think of others instead always myself. We are now married, if I hadn't gotten help he would have been long gone. I often regret getting help all those yrs because I wouldn't see, others had a problem not me.

It's comforting to know you got help and your life is great. Did you have any diagnosis?
