Dating a man with bipolar
It's true that individuals with bi-polar disorder must remain vigilant (and their loved ones can be drawn into this care-taker role), but the experience of living with bi-polar disorder doesn't have to be an interminable roller coaster. I really cant help it as much as I wish Icould because I hate feeling this way.
My bipolar and OCD are at a high right now and im struggling to function and not lose my cool or let me emotions take over. Maybe reading this will hwlp you understand alittle better that sometimes I really cant control my actions.
Overall, loving someone with Bipolar Disorder creates fear and anxiety in the loved ones.
I don't want to down-play any of the serious issues raised here, however, as someone who has lived with bi-polar disorder for over thirteen years, I think it's also important to provide some hope for family members and for people who are coming to terms with the diagnosis.If you share a bed with the person, you may wake up at 4 a.m. You may be further upset when you find that he or she has been up for the third night in a row, unable to lay in bed and sleep.Even if you don't share the bed, that person may be up making noise in the middle of the night and may keep others in the house awake.Bipolar Disorder is one of the most severe mental disorders a person could have.The lives of those suffering from it are hugely impacted by it.
