  • Help required for confused dumped partner - A Discussion About Bipolar | bpHope - bp Magazine Community
    state with me in the background trying to help I literally spent weeks feeding her putting her to bed bathing her even as she sat there crying and blank and that was rewarded with her walking away Thats very hard to bear I could also see that even though she predicted it would happen that doesnt change the fact that what she went through made her feel differently about me when she came out the other side of it It seems somehow the depression shifted the way her brain felt about me and my presence in her world full stop and that as a non bipolar person is nigh on impossible to get my own brain around and try and relate to I dont understand that fully but I wonder if that is something to do with not wanting to put the way she reacts to these things down to her illness and wanting to find another reason I guess what Im wondering is is that a common thing Can a period of a few weeks depression make a bipolar partner come out of it and feel totally differently about their partner like that And is the way for them to avoid that happening to as people seem to imply be in therapy so that they have some kind of reference points when this is occurring And where does that leave us partners in those situations in that in my case certainly I in no way had someone who was in any way able to ride the natural ups and downs of life as a team with an underlying faith in and loyalty to each other because that shift into depression removed all of those things from her in just the space of a month despite 14 happy months together before that God its so so hard to get my head around sorry I guess the final thing I wanted to explain is if someone asked her how her condition affected her she would say At times I get a bit down and then other times I can be a bit critical and insensitive but not for long and she would always say and underline and often use the phrase its very low level bipolar that I have What she most certainly would not admit in any way is that her condition would play a role in affecting how she feels about big stuff like fundamental attitudes to a partner nor that she goes through prolonged period of depression Indeed she would become very angry and upset indeed at the suggestion of such a thing However at the same time in moments of honesty she would also confess to me that she has an unhappy history whereby she can like someone for months and then just go off them and want to be as far away from them as possible surely that is exactly describing someone with a mood disorder and what happened above and what you guys have described

  • He is bipolar I am bipolar - A Discussion About Bipolar | bpHope - bp Magazine Community
    friend had taken a gross photo of a guy for blackmail too and when he looked through my phone and found it I had forgot it was in there because I had over 5 000 photos and he lost it I explained the situation but he dropped me off on the side of the road and basically told me to F off and didn t talk to me for a few days If I said hun or hey I miss you to any JUST male friends he lost it and wouldn t talk to me for a few days Which sure I guess I understand Eventually we got back together again I knew he didn t forgive me for the past because he d bring it up all the time in arguments He d even bring it up and I swear it was just to hold it over my head He started getting lazy with his medications and smoked a lot of weed which makes your medication not as effective He became cold I felt like I was walking on egg shells with him I would be depressed ALL the time and would snap or be a bitch to him Of course some of the times it was to defend myself other times I felt like because he slept all day and was up all night so I started getting really depressed Well after a while it got so bad that we broke up I told him about 5 times I was getting help so I could be a better girlfriend for him Well two of those times I went to a therapist for like two weeks and stopped because I got back with him and didn t want to leave his side The other times I lied to get him back well He went to the hospital for 7 months to get help because he was in the army a lot of mental issues He changed his number and that was that All that time I tried to get back with him he changed his number so I d message him on facebook a lot Eventually I gave up after a few months 7 months after he d gone to the hospital I got a hi on Facebook I thought it was an accident I couldn t believe it So we ended up getting back together after about a month Again things were good for a awhile Eventually HE STOPPED TAKING 10 MEDS HE WAS ON ALL TOGETHER We broke up about four times within about a month and a half him leaving me Again I went to get help and left after a week beacuse we got back together On and off I know he loved me so much and I loved him too I still do but the last straw was he looked through my phone and saw the day after we broke up that I was just talking to guy and girl friends NOTHING bad was

  • New here- new diagnosed partner leaving me - A Discussion About Bipolar | bpHope - bp Magazine Community
    be in a relationship with him Just because they say they are leaving doesn t mean its for good if you stand up for yourself and tell him what he needs to do in order for you both to work on things then maybe when he is alone he will realize what he has lost and be willing to comeback and take his meds to help his disorder and also seek counseling with you to help your situation living with BP disorder Then that decision would be up to you if you are willing to take him back I m not sorry that i did but to each their own decision Be strong and take good care of you first January 14 2016 at 7 48 am 144012 karma Participant Rosepetals your advice is just right January 14 2016 at 1 46 pm 144076 rosepetals Participant Thank you Karma January 14 2016 at 2 24 pm 144087 comet Participant Rosepetals Thank you so much for the thoughtful response I know letting him go is the right thing to do and hopefully he will get there on his own one day I m grateful to have found this group as it helps bring some sanity to this insane world January 14 2016 at 6 16 pm 144113 lrbanks6 Participant Comet I wish you the best of luck and blessings moving forward I can t say I can relate but accepting the illness is the first step to recovery Taking meds does help and they have a way of making you feel dependent on them to function My heart goes out to you All you can do is pray for him and let him see the light on his own Its a painful process January 14 2016 at 7 11 pm 144122 rosepetals Participant Comet you are never alone here And you are most welcome There are millions of people that are suffering from this disorder whether it be the BP person themselves or as in our case the ones that love them So much great advice is given to us from the people who suffer from this most painful disorder You will learn so much if you stay here with us It will make you more confident in your decisions it will help you feel better about yourself and convince you that you are not crazy That you are not to blame and that you can learn what is acceptable and unacceptable behavior regardless of someone you love that suffers from BP You just keep moving forward a little bit better than the day before and eventually through venting and airing your concerns on here you will have a new sense of this disorder and be aware of what needs to happen for yourself and your happiness and peace in your life i wish you nothing but the best for yourself and hope that your BF realizes he is sick and needs care It really is in God s hands it
