Has anyone started a relationship since being diagnosed with mental illness?
I would like to know how hard is it to date when you have a mental illness? When do you tell the person you have a mental illness?
I am sure it is not on the first date, maybe not the second. Do you wait until things get serious?
Is there a certain amount of dates you go on before you tell them?
I am afraid of scaring the person off, but I would like to get to know them before I spring that on them.
If you are in a relationship, has having a mental illness had an effect on any part?
Is it possible to find someone who is patient and loving when you are having a manic episode or going through major depression?
Any answers or words of wisdom is appreciated.
love to all
