    Thank you SO much, Oli! Do people know how wonderful it is to see the word “friend” when a person is hurting? I am so sad over a situation with a gentleman whom I love dearly – but who suffers from unmedicated bipolar disorder. I have known him for some time – he moved into my house with me a month ago – and has abandoned me five times since…[Read more]

    Definitely – things would be better all around if he would see a therapist and obtain the meds he needs. I have even offered to attend an intake or therapy sessions if he thinks that would help him. He has asked me to make an appointment for him for psychiatric intake – but the doctors won’t allow another person to make appointments. So HE…[Read more]

    My art journaling invariably makes me happy. And I haven’t done it in SIX YEARS!! Ever since making a move from Colorado to Missouri (due to a nasty divorce), I have ignored my artistic side. And I have […]

    tanabanana posted an update in the group Group logoMental Illness Support Group 5 years, 11 months ago

    Hello new friends,
    I have been in a relationship with an amazing, kind, brilliant man for several months. He moved into my home with me one month ago – and has now abandoned me (taken ALL his belongings, vehicles, etc) and left me for the FIFTH time this month. Here’s the mental health problem: He is bipolar, and is cycling so quickly that I…[Read more]

    I’m very new here – could someone tell me how to respond to a listener who is giving me advice? I don’t know how to message a specific listener on here.

    Another rough day. Just putting one foot in front of the other. Its a good thing I HAVE to go to work – it provides a rock that I can hold on to, instead of staying home and wallowing in my misery.

    Mood : Crappy
    • Please don’t be sad @tanabanana, try to stay positive and upbeat, keep your head up, that’s good that your work provides you with something to hold on to, I would focus on that, but remember you can and will find other things to make you happy, don’t give up, keep smiling and stay happy, you can do this, stay strong, you are not alone, you are…[Read more]

    Another rough day. Have been in a relationship with a man who suffers from bipolar disorder (unmedicated, but diagnosed) for about three months. He moved into my home with me a month ago. Since moving in, he has moved back to his own apartment FIVE times. I love this man very much, in spite of his nearly-daily rages and rants. When he isn’t…[Read more]

    Mood : Gloomy
    • It sounds like he’s going to come back, although, I don’t know if that’s good for you, if things keep going like this. Would you feel better if he started working with someone to treat and keep in control his illness? That would be a good step for your own sanity.

    • Definitely – things would be better all around if he would see a therapist and obtain the meds he needs. I have even offered to attend an intake or therapy sessions if he thinks that would help him.
