I am having a lot of marital trouble lately. I have been diagnosed as Bipolar II, and my husband is Bipolar I. We bash heads all the time, but he is able to control his problem better than I can. We fight constantly, and we barely even make love anymore. I am just not interested in it. I am on medication, and I just totally lost my Libido. We are only 22 years old, and our marriage is falling apart. We have been together for 3 years. The first 2 years were wonderful. Now that we have more stress in our lives, our disorders are more and more prominent. Today, those old feelings of suicide popped into my head again, and haven't been there for a while. Please help.
