Bipolar affecting marriage

Hi, I was was married this past october, but my relationship is getting really tough right now. I have bipolar disorder 1. My significant other and I always seem to be fighting. I think it is my fault, the smallest thing is enough to set me off and lately I am having a much more difficult time controlling myself. Last night I was ready to just start walking until there was no more--no more, well, anything. This is probably the darkest bout of depression I have ever experienced--second only to the one where I attempted suicide. What should I do? Should I call my psychiatrist or wait until our appointment on wednesday? Anyone have any advice?

Help
If you are feeling that depressed you should most defenitely contact your doctor as soon as possible. Bi-polar disorder & depression are not something you should ever take lightly. I speak from experience. I had many suicide attempts, the last leaving me with some brain damage.
Please call your doctor immediately and take care of yourself.
