Dating people with bipolar disorder
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.
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 have bipolar 2 and I think I'm generally pretty easy to date despite it.
Hypomanic episodes: good mood, very creative, high sex drive, very productive, that's when I tend to do a lot of problem solving and cleaning/tidying.
