I´m sure some attitudes of the other partner may aggravate it and others make them milder. Must i let him beg for sex…say today i´m busy i cant go ,…So that he values me.I´m not that way but that does function with bipolars, or do you loose them completely.At the end of my first date with Sara, she moved in with me. Until that night, we'd only spoken on the phone a few times. By the time the ice in my soda had melted, I'd fallen in love. We'd gone to a Hollywood hamburger stand and gabbed about bands and writers for four hours. I texted him a couple times just to let him know I was there and didn't expect him to reply until he was feeling better. He wondered if it was something with that or if he stopped taking the medication.
It's not unusual for someone unmedicated with this disorder to be up for two or three days straight because their mind and body simply won't let them sleep.
I couldn't follow what he was saying, nothing made sense to me. If he was just diagnosed (which I'm not sure) how long does it take for the meds to start working? If he stopped his meds, how long before an episode would happen?
My questions are when he gets in these states, does he remember our phone conversations?
"I hope it doesn't scare you off."Panicked thoughts raced through my mind. This was the odd humor Sara and I had already established, but I wasn't entirely joking.
I'd had several close bipolar friends, and had once been in a long-term relationship with a bipolar woman, Nyla, whom I still consider the smartest person I'd ever met.
While other disorders, such as depression and anxiety, may work in cycles or waves, Bipolar Disorder requires constant, vigilant management.
