I'm worried about my husband. His mood is becoming gradually and progressively more unpredictable.
He is otherwise gentle, kind and loving - we are a happy couple with few things to worry about. St times he seems subdued with little motivation, but then don't we all. However he seems to have an alter ego. His other self is tense with a short fuse - anything will trigger an aggressive rage. He will slam things, storm about and rant at me. At the time he believes his behaviour is totally rational and there is absolutely no reasoning with him.
I recorded an episode recently. When I played it back to him, he was horrified. He said he had not been aware of his behaviour at the time, that he had no idea why he had acted that way.
He completely accepts that he has a problem of some kind. His acceptance of his problem doesn't stop him though. He has a period of 'normality' then quite out of the blue, tension will build in him until the point where he rages. This cycle of calm and rage repeats every few weeks. Sometimes two weeks sometimes more.
I'm exhausted with it all. To say I'm worried is an understatement. The description that best fits him is Bipolar.
I'd so appreciate some advise
