    My husband will not get help of any kind, except he is on paxil for depression. I believe it is a deeper issue. He is content and happy one minute, and then like a light switch gets angry and verbally aggressive over virtually nothing. I don't know how else to help and I am ready to give on the marriage because he does not think what he says and does is wrong.

    It sounds like there is a mood disorder present. Might not be bipolar but it still could be in the mood disorder category. Lithium really helps me and it is easy to take and adjust to. I take paxil, lithium. I also take zyprexa since my diagnosis is schizoaffective disorder, bipolar type.

    How is it going, Anon_50302? Has anything changed since a month ago? I knew someone like you described with a light-switch aggressive personality over nothing. He was always like that. When I didn't have to be around him at all, and then some years later I happened to be around him, he was still the same...But I didn't have to be around him, so I left him where he was to stew in his own anger and aggressiveness. Too much negativity for me.
