There is "Rapid Cycling" BiPolar.

Also, look at Borderline Personality Disorder - it often has explosive anger, mood changes, and a popular book for people living with a BPD is "Stop Walking on Eggshells". As I read your post and you were talking about eggshells I thought of this book.

My dad is brilliant, but he has no people skills. He has no patience with people who can't see things his way. This has gotten much worse as he has grown older. He is BiPolar, though he has had only one manic episode. I'm sure that my dad never smoked pot.

Does he recognize that his behavior is difficult for you?

Ann Landers was famous for suggesting that a person get counseling, or if they couldn't be convinced to do that that their significant other get counseling. A therapist might be able to help you identify a likely diagnosis. But more importantly, a therapist can help you know how to deal with him so that you can help him, and protect yourself.

Good Luck
