Mental health issues

Recommended Posts

My wife has a very bad temper and cant control herself and she hurt and give us all a lot of problems, pain and fear.

Afterwords she cry and feel very bad and shameful and sometimes she hurt herself physically. 

I worry very much and both our families too.

We have been in contact several times with clinics and doctors and she still suffers.

We would like to find a specialist in this matter, one who really cares and have experience and are worth the time and money.

Does anyone here have any good advise to share?

Anywhere in Thailand.

Thanks

1. How old is your wife?

 

2. Has she always been this way or did it start later, if so at what age?

 

3. Are these episodes constant or does she go as much as 2 weeks with none?

 

The reason I ask all this is that there could be a hormonal cause in which case needs a specialist in that rather than a mental health professional.

Thank you for the reply.

1. 39y

2. According to her family it started early in her adolescence.

3. It is constant and she can feel excited and happy for about 48 hours tops but never longer.

OK so not hormonal.

 

Suggest this psychiatrist in Bangkok who specializes in behavioral and mood disorders. 

 

https://www.bumrungrad.com/en/doctors/Suttiporn-Janenawasin

 

There is a considerable mark up on medications at that hospital so ask if what she prescribes can be bought at apharmacy without a script, if it can then buy it at one (after finding out dose of course)

I hate to to sound insensitive, but such kind of things rarely get better.

Could be she's bi-polar and hasn't been diagnosed properly - might need meds.


If you haven't been married long, best to change the wife rather than mend the wife.
Was she taking yaba and/or drugs anytime during her life?

My one flew into a rage just recently, took a knife from the draw and threatened to cut her throat. She was sat watching Netflix within the hour. They are all raving bonkers.

I had a fling with a woman like that and in the end her family including her children disowned her. She was an abusive, lazy drunkard who would never apologise for her behaviour.

 

She regretted nothing even when she'd sobered up. She'd often been on the sauce the previous evening when she's been performing. But she could be the same without drink and again no apology was ever offered.

 

She only calmed down with age. She'd been reasonably attractive while younger and that was her only saving grace but she wound up alone rarely seeing either of her two children.

 

But at least your wife knows she's done wrong so there is hope for you and the family. And hopefully she's not too fond of strong drink.

 

There are some drugs that can help and also natural remedies like Evening Primrose Oil.

 

Such a relationship can be an absolute nightmare and I wish you the best of luck.

 

However If she does not respond in a reasonable time and if you have no children I'd seriously consider calling it a day with her because you may be consigning your self to a life of tension, misery and as you yourself said fear. You could even find yourself being arrested.

 

And at some time in the future  you may wish you'd taken your leave earlier. We're all only here for a visit.

 

If you hang around too long it can ruin your life, I wish I'd scarpered long before I actually did but like a fool I thought she'd change but she steadily got worse as she realised what a mug I was for tolerating her. She played on it.

Whomever you consult, bring the names of all medications she has been given with you.

 

I agree it is likely either bipolar disorder or drugs or both. 

 

The manic phase of BPD sometimes manifests as rage rather than euphoria.

 

BPD can be controlled with medication (if the patient cooperates and there is no drug abuse) but it can take quite some time and trial and error to get the medication regimen just right so perservere and once you have found a doctor you feel is diligent and understanding, keep going back and do not give up or switch just because the medication given did nto seem to work. Even the best doctor often has to try different mixes of meds before they get it right, every patient is different. Alos, it takes time for medications to take full effect, it is not immediate. Sometimes sveeral weeks.

 

If she is abusing drugs that is another matter and unless she is serious about stopping, best to separate - getting legal advise on how to get full custody of children if any first

Thanks for sharing, i can relate to your experience a bit.

My wife doesnt drink thou but she never apologizes for anything.

We have a child together so leaving is not an option for me, i just have to commit and ride along with what we have started

and try to make her feel happy and balanced, I really wish for her to reach that state of mind.

Thanks again and best of luck to you.
