I felt so bad reading your posts, like Karen I also have bipolar and have created similar havoc when manic. I also 'hated' my husband for forcing me to get help, you have to try and understand the incredible feelings a person gets when manic- it causes you to lose sight of everything you hold dear (family, home, etc.). I wish I could be more optimistic, but in my case the desire to be well had to come from me, it's like a drug addict hitting bottom. All you can do now is to take care of your own health and make sure your children are provided for and wait for her manic episode to end- whether involuntarily or not, what goes up comes down. When she is down (and she agrees to lift the restraining order), only you can decide if you want to come back, and if so what kind of safety net you have in place- e.g. if she begins to get manic again and refuses meds, you will need to have her pdoc hospitalize her. I know how painful this must be for you and you have my sympathy- judy
