I could have written that exact original post. My husband was just recently diagnosed but I’ve been dealing with this for about a decade. I love him and I see his positive qualities…at the same time I am not willing to let him bankrupt our family. Are there any resources for how to deal with money issues? I handle all of our finances but can’t figure out if I should take his debit card away or what. This seems to be the hardest part for me to deal with. His spending never stops, even now as he has lost another job. He’s about to go on meds but, like the original post, I know he will have trouble taking them regularly and getting the prescription filled.
