Dating someone bipolar roller coaster
Its really hurtful going out with him because when he wants me he pressures till i fall again and after going out with him he emotionally disconnects as if he hated me.
You either love someone or you don’t, but you cant go behind then tell them you don’t love them, have sex with them and later not call in a week.
Ive arrived to the conclusion i must accept him as he is or i will become mad.
So the answer for me was to be friends with benefits that way when he didn’t call me i wouldn’t feel rejected.
Do you or someone you know exhibit the following characteristics: frequent self-injurious behaviors (SIB), suicidal ideations or suicide attempts, frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment, unstable and intense interpersonal relationships that include alternating between extremes of idealization and devaluation, identity disturbance, impulsivity (acting before thinking), chronic feelings of emptiness, and inappropriate and intense emotions that are sometimes disproportional to the trigger?
Sadly, many males (adolescents and adults) also exhibit symptoms of BPD but are often misdiagnosed as Attention Deficit Disorder or oppositional defiant disorder.
Some research suggests that BPD is a disorder often identified and diagnosed mainly in women.
Rarely is it ever diagnosed or even considered a diagnosis for a man. Because the pre-established gender norms (that are limited) have made identifying symptoms of BPD difficult in men.
The most essential thing to remember when involved with someone with a personality disorder is that to them other people are a major source of energy.
If we imagine that we have an electrical cable that is connected to our core we can see how an abuser will plug in the feed to their core and drain every drop of fuel until we are empty.
