Hello NightStar72
welcome to babble (i haven't seen your name here before- Beautiful btw!)
sunny10 gave great words of advice. i'm only going to add that journaling has been Great for me. you may want to give it a try. my dx is similar to yours Bp2, dysthymia, BPD-depressive type, anxiety, little ED, OCD and possibly PTSD. (boy that was a long list!)

anyway- journaling, exersizing and a hobby may help. i like journaling cuz sometimes i start to free write (doensn't need to make sense just start writing sentences and tell yourself you can't stop the flow for say 5 min or such, it's interesting what comes out). i like exercizing when i feel things getting out of control or if anxiety is getting high, and my hobby is painting/sketching. it's something i can do in my own home, or outdoors. and my hubby knows not to 'disturb' me while i'm doing's my 'get away' time.

keep posting, and HTH.

> you are both hurting right now. We women mostly want to lighten the load by sharing our pain with others (and we do it because it helps!). But men tend to be stoic and communicate LESS when they are in pain.
> I really feel that this is the distancing/loneliness that you are experiencing right now.
> Give yourself permission to buy that manual online. There is no need to procrastinate a trip into town. It is ok that you don't feel up to the emotional trip of walking into that bookstore, locating the book, waiting in line, and paying for it. I have often put off things that may help me just because of logistics... then I learned to do what I needed on the internet when I wasn't ready to "face the world".
> I hope you'll continue to post here and let us know how you are doing.
