Re: New Relationship With Bipolar Partner

I'm bipolar (also bpd) and my boyfriend is bipolar (also adhd). Being with him for almost 4 years now, I can honestly say that it is difficult to help out at times and you just need to be there for him. Sometimes being there in silence is better than not being there at all.

It is not easy to "go with the flow" of a bipolar. We have many moods and can change at the drop of a dime. Make sure you are willing to be there for him, make sure you love him. If you aren't sure if you love him, then for his sake break it off, if you don't, then you will be hurting him and yourself for no reason.

Sorry about the negativity, but this disease is a tough one to explain becuase it is so random with every person that has it and it isn't easy to help some one through (my ex husband can tell you that).

Be good to yourself and to him..........
