Has anyone ever actually gotten an answer to why? It’s bee

Has anyone ever actually gotten an answer to why? It’s been almost two weeks since finding out. It’s still so difficult and I just don’t understand how after being together 7 years he could do this to me. Has anyone heard about being bipolar having a reason or cause on infidelity? When did you guys start to notice the pain ease up?

Imo you will never get an answer to the why that will explain the hurt and pain they put you through. It was a long time before I got an emotional break . As far as the bipolar question I'm not sure but anyone can cheat.

People who are bipolar may go through emotional ups and downs and sometimes react more impulsively but they still know right from wrong and it’s definitely not an excuse for making choices to cheat. Cheating is a selfish and emotionally immature choice. Lots of people with bipolar disorder live their lives without cheating. What choices is your partner making to manage their bipolar disorder?

He is in therapy again about twice a week individual and then we do at least a session together a week. He is also seeking out medication again. I can see that he is making efforts right now to change and that he was really unhappy with the person he became and decisions he made but I’m so terrified he will just stop and this would happen again.
