My husband's bipolar delusions are back [View all]

I have discussed my own depression and anxiety in this forum and you have all been such a great help to me, my husband suffers from bipolar disorder and despite taking his meds properly, has gone into a fantasy world that must not be questioned. His old therapist left for another job last year, and the new guy is caring and good, but he hasn't seen Mike go through this before, and I feel like he is getting fooled into believing the situation isn't as bad as it really is. He and I have been in regular contact through this, which started Thanksgiving weekend, but things are getting worse and I don't know what to do since the therapist says my husband isn't nearly bad enough to be forced into the hospital. Mike has been in a hotel since Thanksgiving because he believes the hotel has hired him unofficially to oversee a renovation taking place there, this is definitely false! He is deep into believing this, but can sound absolutely well when discussing other things. His therapist told me to tell my husband what I need, which is him home, of course that ended exactly like I predicted, with him telling me that if I am not completely ok with what he is doing, I should go ahead and file for divorce.

I am so afraid this will not end well, and I worry it is my fault for not finding a way to get him committed to work on his meds. I am having trouble doing much right now from all the worry.
