I have been living with my boyfriend for 4 years, and although it hasn't been easy, it has been one of the most rewarding relationships I have ever been in. Being bipolar makes life and relationships more complex than for the average person. I appreciate his support and love, and admit that over the course of our four year relationship, I have also pondered the possibility of breaking up. Being bipolar is hard and unbearable at times, but seeing someone I love endure my highs and lows with me, is harder still.
I was diagnosed bipolar 7 years ago and since then, I have received some counseling and taken my meds on a daily basis. There is nothing more powerful and meaningful however, than feeling loved and supported. If being there for your girlfriend makes you feel complete, then be there for her. But a relationship requires two willing people. The journey won't be easy, but if the both of you are willing to do everything to make your relationship work, then you're already on the right path (-:
Hope you both find the courage to keep your love and commitment strong. If she is willing to have you help her and encourage her to upkeep her medical regime, that's great. But if she isn't willing to let you help her, her family needs to know what's going on, cause sometimes we are proud or feel embarassed-- and don't want our family to know that we are having an episode. We'll appreciate the intervention in the long run though (-:
Warmest Regards.
