Re: Never ending issues......
Medication alone isn't responsible for your boyfriend's behavior. Mental abuse is not
a symptom of Bipolar, it's a personality problem and something he can control or
refrain from if he wanted to. I think pinning your hopes on medication, i.e. he will act

correct his personality flaws and character defects. Medication can't change a
