Dating girl bipolar disorder
Dating girl bipolar disorder - Ladyboy chat colombia
The relationship was filled with lies, manipulation, endless drama, she cheated on me repeatedly and then when I said I was leaving she threatened to kill herself and started cutting her wrists with a knife.Ended up just calling her mom, explained the situation and said "you better come home, im not dealing with this shit".
I wouldn't want to go through it like I did the first time. To answer that last one, yeah she definitely pushed me away multiple times, that's where a lot of the pain came from.
The biggest issue is how easily things switch from "you're perfect" to feeling like you can't do anything right.
No matter how hard you try, how much you love them, there are times that they are impulsive and dangerous, and you can't really help.
Being in a LTR with anyone with mental health issues really means you are frequently providing one way support because your partner is dealing with their internal issues, your sex life has long dry spells as they deal with their issues (and frequently their meds play hell with their libedo) and you need to be more active in managing the relationship's health.
One of the things you need to be wary of is getting to a place where your partner is unhappy but not vocalizing it because you are their key support system.
I would think there would be a HUGE difference between someone getting the right medication/treatment for Bipolar, or those who have learned good coping skills, and those who are untreated or undiagnosed.
I have OCD (fairly severe, when unmedicated), but thanks to therapy (years and years ago) and Prozac I can live completely normally.Sometimes I'll have no sex drive for a week or more - sometimes my sex drive is off the charts for a week or more.Sometimes she sees me getting abnormally paniced or despondent, but I bring myself down and balance myself out.For perspective, my GF happened to date someone with undiagnosed BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder - more difficult to deal with, and compared to him, my issues are hardly significant at all.None of this prevents me from being a loving, caring, and attentive boyfriend.If you find out after dating for a while and you're emotionally invested, I wish you luck. Those things are much more difficult to manage long-term, so I see dating people with those illnesses as agreeing to be placed in harms way, regardless of how well they're managing.
