My heart goes out to you and your wife. I've also experienced psychotic manic episodes and because of the rapid cycling nature of my illness, I have had several in the past year or so. I also feel guilt- mainly because i feel like a burden to my husband at those times, and i imagine with your own illness your wife feels even more guilt. taking 'illicit' meds that alter moods is a very common coping mechanism for me also. the action that has helped my family the most is we get group counseling in addition to my individual therapy sessions. i agree with Mark that this is too much for you to handle, and you definitely need to avail yourself of the help out there. if it's financial problems that are preventing your wife from getting this help, then there are clinics designed to provide services for little or no money. if she refuses to get help, then i strongly urge you to go and learn how to deal with her behavior. there have been a few times where my husband contacted my shrink and he was able to convince me to take my medication. take care, judy
