Am i dating someone who is bipolar
After six months of dating, I knew that this was the man I was going to marry.
He said that he knew from the second he saw me walk into the AA group, which is quite a romantic thing to say.
Bipolar disorder is described as a set of behaviors that fluctuate wildly without any external provocation.
Moods shift from extremely manic highs to extremely depressed lows.
Every girl who is looking for her Prince Charming always envisions a tall, dark and handsome man.
Few descriptions of this person ever describe his mental condition; however, psychology tells us that if a person is tall, dark and handsome, the halo effect that we ascribe to him will automatically include intelligence, wit and mental stability.
Even as you read this, you are likely saying to yourself that I am letting love blind me and that I may even be in some physical danger.
This is exactly why I would like to focus on the difference between dating someone with a mental disorder and someone who has the potential to abuse you and possibly end your life.
If you are dating someone with a true mental disorder, then that person should first be aware himself of his problem.
Before we go into the reasons that this is difficult, we must go first into the character traits that made me want to marry him despite his mental disorder.
The spirit that I saw in this man as he dealt with his bipolar disorder was unshakable.
Believe me, this social pressure is an incredibly difficult ship to navigate, because while a bipolar person is depressed, the things that they say resemble abuse.
