My husband

Please pray for my husband. He is bipolar and and addict. I am at a loss on what to do. We have been married for 16 1/2 years and he has fought his addictions since before we were married. I was not aware of his addictions before we were married but have tried to support him all these years. He has gambled most of our savings away and as I type this he is probably at palace station. He is also addicted to pot and I don't want my daughter to be around him when he is high. I made an appointment with a divorce lawyer later this week. I do feel it's the right thing to do since he has never really been a husband to me....I always am there to pick him up. He has all the tools to stay sober....he attended Celebrate Recovery, he has a strong mens support group, he has an awesome christian counselor and a wonderful psychiatrist. When he gets in a manic state he doesn't care who he hurts. He has been in this state several times in our marriage and is on one right now.... Please also pray for me and my daughter. I need to protect and be strong for her. Thank you and God bless!

Hi, I will pray for you. My

Hi, I will pray for you. My husband is also bipolar and is having a major episode. He abandoned me and I am pregnant. It's been so confusing and heartbreaking. I have not talked to him for almost 4 months.

Thank you very much! I will

Thank you very much! I will also pray for you and your unborn child. I am so sorry what you are going through. I totally understand the frustration, heartache and emotional stress. I have been in this cycle for so many years. I do love my husband with all of me but I'm realizing that I can't do a thing for him but pray for him. I do need to make a decision for me and my daughter soon....it is tearing her apart too. I don't understand why it's so hard for me to just divorce him and get off of this crazy ride since I don't really enjoy life with him....I guess I just want to save my family. I know I have to give it all to the Lord...He has control. Thank you again for the prayers!
