Husband of 21 yrs had 3 mo long affair, when I found prepaid phone he kept telling me it wasn't him. HE wouldn't ever do this to me and kids. There was no sex but did kiss. He tried committing suicide and started cutting after this. I took him to pdoc and he was diagnosed bipolar. ( uncle committed suicide, other was manic depressive so it's in his family)
He keeps telling me he felt like some force was pushing him thru and that now he has lost most memories, has no emotions from it, and it feels like it never happened even though he knows it did. He said he felt like he had no control over any of it and did not realize he was even in an affair.
He has a lot of guilt and is very remorseful. This is very out of character for him. We were both very blindsided by this.
Does all this sound familiar? Anyone else experience this with bipolar?
