If they are diagnosed bipolar, and if you have no experience with that kind of dynamic, I think you are very smart to find a therapist to vent to and help you understand. That is a very complicated illness, and you will be a champ in the future for dealing with them and how they handle things. My grandmother has been in and out of hospitals this whole past year for her bipolar disorder, and it is very difficult for my aunt and dad. The things that she says cannot be fixed with an ‘I’m sorry”, and my family has learned over the years how to effectively deal with her outbursts. I’m really sorry you are going through this, it is very, very difficult.

Do not let what Future Mother-In-Law and Future Brother-In-Law say make you doubt your relationship with your FH. They have an illness that can cause them to say and do and think things that are irrational, and you can only learn to deal with it, not let it pull you apart. When my mom married my dad, his mom’s bipolar outbursts and manic stages almost pulled them apart. Over the years, she learned more about it and how to deal with it and things were fine ever since. It is a struggle, but just the fact that you called insurance and are taking the necessary steps shows that you can, and will, learn to push what they say aside and not let it impact your relationship. It’s hard. Stay strong. 🙂
