Dating people with bipolar disorder
Believe it or not, I actually met my husband at an AA meeting.
His depressive state had caused him to use alcohol as a sort of self-medication.
Part of the reason that I married him was that he let me know exactly how debilitating his condition was.
He said that he knew from the second he saw me walk into the AA group, which is quite a romantic thing to say.
He says very romantic things, which is another reason why I had to lock it down.
These steps should hopefully help you feel a little more confident and put aside any worries you may have.
Remember, everyone is different, and these steps may not all apply to your new beau.
Bipolar disorder can be tough for the person affected; some people learn to control it, some don't, but it's important to understand how they're affected and how you can help them.
