Boyfriend is bipolar, help!
I've been going out with my boyfriend for nearly a year now and I still can't predict his moods. Most of the time he can be very clingy, almost annoyingly so, calling an hour after I leave his house "to catch up", getting jealous and thinking I'm about to leave him over the slightest things and getting upset. Then suddenly he'll get really low and will avoid all contact with me, just spends hours on the phone to his brother and friends, and when he does see me he'll insult me, ignore me completely or complain that I'm too much work and he feels like he has to do everything for me. When he gets low I don't call him or go see him anymore unless he seeks me out, but even if he does call me he then acts really distant.
We've broken up twice before when he's in his really low periods, then got back together. I think we're close to breaking up again and I don't know what to do. I really do like him, but I'm sick of feeling like I'm going out with two people, and its making me feel like a toy to be put down and picked up again whenever he feels like it. Its just awful because most of the time he's really sweet, and I feel like I may trigger or at least increase his lows. Please help me, I don't know what I can do to help him.
