Dating a girl with bipolar disorder
I’d been misdiagnosed for years but it was a recent bout of mania that finally confirmed their fears. As many others who have been cared for by mental health services will know, receiving a diagnosis at this age is rather unique and is not often done due to psychiatrists not wanting to label someone they deem to be fairly young.
But, it felt good to receive a diagnosis after years of feeling helpless and as though I was driving myself mad.

Of course, it’s not something you want to shout out to everybody.Jodi Arias – in my opinion, – a good example of a woman with quiet BPD (she functions superficially well but her chameleon-like façade breaks open once her relational views are challenged) murdered her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander; Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction attempted to murder her former lover but failed and found her own death.Most real-life relationships with a partner who has BPD are not deadly.Individuals learn to watch out for triggers that may send them spinning into an exaggerated mood state.Yet, sex for those who are bipolar can prove a real minefield.
