Dating a bipolar sufferer Girls webcam no credit
When you first meet someone, you put your best foot forward so your prospective love interest sees your good points before your faults come out.Once things become comfortable, your partner discloses his or her bipolar disorder."I hope it doesn't scare you off."Panicked thoughts raced through my mind. This was the odd humor Sara and I had already established, but I wasn't entirely joking.I'd had several close bipolar friends, and had once been in a long-term relationship with a bipolar woman, Nyla, whom I still consider the smartest person I'd ever met.You will see, from close up, the effects of mania and depression.Considering to leave the person because the disorder has become too much is common. If you want a person to change, you must first realize how hard it is to change yourself.
Of course, everyone suffers and deals with bipolar differently, and there are many different types on the spectrum, with Type 1 and 2 being most common.
Type 1 bipolar disorder means you have more extreme mood swings with longer periods of mania. Of course, neither type is necessarily ‘better’ or ‘worse’ than another and everyone with the disorder will have experience what they deem to be the ‘worst part’ of the disorder at some point or another.
However, while everyone with the disorder knows what to expect, those close to them may not be as familiar with how they might act during a time of mania or depression.
Even if you don’t realize it at the time, this was a huge step in trust.
Over time, you will learn the nuances of the disorder.
