Need support

I am loosing my mind. My husband was diagnosed with bipolar for years now but its just getting worse. My daughter was just diagnosed with borderline bipolar and she is 12. Our household is just up in arms and never settled. I am used to a quiet house and its just not good. My husband just keeps lying, he doesnt do anything but sit on his phone and do Facebook. He is constantly mad at me for having a job but then he literally turns it all around and loves me happy with out life etc. We have been together 15 years and I always knew he was bipolar (i was able to get him proper medical advise in our younger dating years) but not it is just overwhelming.

Do any of you moms have a family member who suffers with extreme bipolar? I am thankful he isnt an angry abusive bipolar BUT this is just like I am living on a roller coaster. I am very worried about my daughter turning out like this.

    My little sister was diagnosed with it around 15. She also has Schizophrenia. She is abusive and lies a lot. She had to be placed in a group home around 17 because she tried to kill me twice and was very abusive. My mom tried but she got worse. She claims she is cured and won't take her meds. It is a nightmare, I know.

    We also believe my step-daughter may have it because of her switching moods in an instant. That isn't fun, either.

    My husband was dx with bipolar, schizophrenia, manic and a few other things. I found a treatment facility for him that is outpatient but he still will not go. This is ruining our life. I've thought of divorce but I dont want to do that. I love him and I know it is an illness but its destroying our life. He is on Social security for his mental illness. I sometimes feel like I need to get him admitted but dont want to make matters worse.

    I have heard that taking medication when one has bipolar and schizo doesn't do any good because one medication for one affects the other. They truly need counseling. They often believe they are fine because they see nothing wrong with they way they behave. My little sister will make you believe you are the run crazy. It is so difficult and frustrating, I know. I wish I had more helpful advice. Unfortunately, we cannot force them to go.
