When Jim Mc Nulty, 58, of Burrillville, Rhode Island, got married in the 1970s, everything seemed fine at first."It was an absolutely normal courtship," he recalls. During his "up" or hypomanic states, he would spend huge sums of money he didn't have.
It's sounds to me like she's using avoidance to not face guilt feelings.This is coming from a bi-polar girl, so I'm not just talking out of my arse.You have to have a great deal of patience and understanding to be in a relationship with a bi-polar individual. I have been dating someone for the past five years who suffers from bipolar and to be honest I have never felt so unhappy, unhealthy in my life. I love this person extremely or I would not want to even be pursuing common Welcome to the group cindy. I think our mission of the group is to provide a safe place to talk about your feelings and have the opportunity to speak to other people who can relate. I am normally a very happy person and since being with my husband i find myself not so happy anymore i spend my time in the house walking on eggshells not spending time with my family and eventhough my husnamd tells me to go out and do things i know that if i do there will be consequences, like sending me mean txt messages while in out.You also get a chance to read our stories so it does help you to realize it's not you. If talking about it helps talk til you're blue in the face. Sometimes that means letting go, and sometimes that means working hard so that we can salvage our relationships. So he knows i wont have a good time so i just do go.
