I struggle with similar issues with my wife and it is easy to feel alone, especially when she's in the throws of an episode and I constantly feel like the bad guy as I try to help her along. With medication, with sleep, with balance, etc. Reading stories about how others have found a way, reassures me to keep trying, to somehow get through the darkness she that the light will come again. ***
