Dating bipolar ii
Every time he full-on abused me he called the cops immediately and either make up a completely fake story or tell the cops that it was me who attacked him(I am a man of words not blows). Broke into my room(separated from the rest of the house) to abuse me.
He was diagnosed about 7 or 8 years ago, on meds for a while then we just ignored the problem thinking it would go away. Three years ago I left after a very bad manic episode and he would not seek any professional help.It’s not that we don’t necessarily understand these things aren’t reasonable; it’s just that we can’t help the way our brain thinks, the way it leaps.Not everyone jumps to the extremes, but people with bipolar seem to have that tendency.Many times during these incidents and arguments he threatened to snap my neck or kill me stating that he wasn’t afraid to go to jail.And this guy is not someone that would survive in jail.People with bipolar disorder are constantly trying to figure out what a “normal” and “reasonable” thought process and reaction would be in any given situation.
We’re constantly trying to overcome how our bipolar brain naturally thinks in order to have healthy interactions and healthy relationships.
Of course, it’s hard for me to compare it with your average person as I have bipolar disorder.
I don’t have the two thought processes in my one brain to compare.
And if that happens then all those pesky catastrophes we worried needlessly about will have come true.

Of course, because people with bipolar have jumped to the extremes – usually negative ones – we sure the heck worry about it once we get there.
