It seems as though any time a man is nice to me, whether is a friendly hug, compliment or just being plain nice, my head starts thinking it is the beginning of a relationship. It is. the only problem is that the relationship only exists in my head, the sick part of the brain.
I always seem to mess up potential friendships with men because I do not tell them I live with bipolar which for them means DRAMA.
Even I hate the day to day DRAMA that is a big part of bipolar.
Recently, someone I respect and admire, told me I would never have a real involved relationship with a man. Bipolar in itself is hard to ask someone to deal with and then there are my physical illnesses as well. The bipolar seems to be running the show.
My question: Is she right. Is it impossible to have a romantic relationship having bipolar?
What are the success rates or are the divorce rates higher.
Is anyone currently in a relationship where one person is bipolar and the other is not?
How is it working.
Do you ever feel you cannot handle the mood changes any more.
I would love to hear from you.
