... Hi, Just wanted to say that this seems to be a question that comes up time and again on this board-both from those who suffer with BP and those close to them.I have (or had) a very close friend who broke off contact with me a few months ago-she suffers from a mood disorder/mental health issues-I don't know her exact diagnosis-it hurt me very badly when she did that-her words...

... Dogmansa, from reading your past posts about your experiences with your fiancee, I am just so touched. Honestly, your second post here sounded incredibly similar to my fiance's post on another bipolar-related board and it broke my heart to read of your intense love for her and what she puts you though, because I know it's exactly the same love that he has for me, and is...
