Dating a bipolar girl monica belluci dating
She stopped going to therapy, stopped taking her meds and became physically abusive to me. On the one hand, any relationship is going to have difficulties, ups and downs.
On the other hand, if you love each other enough, coping with BP is not that much different than coping with any other illness - you are there to support them and help them get through the really difficult times and also to enjoy the times (and you will have them) when things are good.
This seems to be more of an issue with BP1 where mood swings are more pronounced and, for lack of a better word, quicker.
In BP2 the swing generally is more gradual, like over days/weeks/months.
If you really like this person, then go for it BUT be prepared.
Don't you dare go into this thinking that a few good days or weeks means you're out of the woods.
Mental illness is a lifetime commitment both for the person dealing with it AND for the people who love them.
This presumes no co-morbid psychological disorders. All the brain stuff can be daunting to figure out if it's not humming along in a consistent manner.
People who aren't so afflicted tend to get their fill and then move on since there are billions of people in the world. I too believe everyone deserves to love and be loved, mentally ill people are no different.
Someone who is well-controlled on their meds, and takes them consistently, is probably a good risk.
