Dating bipolar man
When I accepted my diagnosis and life with bipolar disorder, I finally found my confident self, but I had to overcome some obstacles to get there.
by my boyfriend: he manipulated me into questioning my own sanity. We started dating around three years after my diagnosis—when I was just starting to publish my blog and open up about my struggle with mental health.
Dating a bipolar guy is not for the faint at heart.
People who have bipolar disorder are more likely to abuse alcohol or drugs, take excessive risks that can lead to accidents, or be unable to hold down a job.
Unlike in a "typical" relationship, where each side shoulders an equal amount of the responsibility, you will need to be prepared to expend more patience and understanding.
Slowly he began to use my diagnosis of bipolar against me.
In his mind, everything I said or did was a result of my mood disorder.
The fact is, we all have issues, whether you live with bipolar disorder or not.
And if someone won’t give you a chance because of a label, consider yourself lucky.
Bipolar disorder is a part of me, and I am not ashamed of my condition, in fact, it is the opposite, I embrace it.
