|hi everyone. :)
i'm not in a cheery mood today. My husband is bipolar and has hypersexuality. I hope that's what its called. Lol. Anywho, he is constantly on me about having sex and i'm extremely frustrated. Its like he doesn't care if i'm so sore that I just can't do it or if i'm not, that i'm just not in the mood. We've talked about all sorts of ways to help calm him down. He's told me that I could say "no" nicely. Caress his ear or just cuddle. To be quite honest, I just got up about an hour ago, he took our kids to school, came home and was at me about sex. I told him no and he said "f* you."
we got into a huge fight over this two days ago, talked about it, he regretted being so pushy and all and now all the sudden, it's happened again. I do love him and I am willing to work on this with him but when this happens, I just feel so lost, confused, and like he just doesn't care about how i'm feeling.
His doc gave him clonidine to help control it a year ago and it worked for about a week. Since then, nothing has changed. The clonidine doesn't work and I don't think there are other meds that might help him.
the hypersexual thing is part of a manic episode... He could just spiral over the top , really he should be on seroquel to keep him grounded.. At least it worked for me ,
ps the hypersexual thing really is not that great for him because he can never get enough sex in that manic state .. At least I couldnt... (my hubby loved it)... But for me the dellusions and paranoia come with the hypersexual state so it is not great
he should talk to his pdoc about meds if he is like that
