Dating someone who has bipolar disorder
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.We want you to hold our hand so tightly during take off so we know just how little we are in that big sky. We feel so empty, you'll look at us and wonder what you did wrong.We'll sit there and tell you that this time it's not you, and we'll mean it.Fast forward six years: we were madly in love and engaged, then married.One year after that, my husband came home after work, sat down at the kitchen table, and told me he wanted a divorce. A few months after that, he was diagnosed with Bipolar 2, and our marriage was in for a hell of a ride. I was 18 years old, pregnant, scared and lonely when I met my now-husband.We became best friends, and two years later he married another woman and had a baby.
