Default Re: Boundaries and bipolar question

I know you are instinctively feeling that something is wrong with this picture. The blaming u for the episode sounds really off. Also there are things we bipolars have to do to fight our way out of an episode and working 12 hour days is not one of them. That sounds more like the hypomanic end of the spectrum. People arenít as social when they r depressed, we do withdraw, but yes, if u r planning a life together this isnít going to work. Fewer demands on us when we r having an episode helps, but who wants a workoholic anyway? My brother is one, a top ranked litigator and past board char of cancer soc worldwide. He trashed all his relationships.
Of course we have all seen all the movies where someoneís signif other makes all these excuses for not seeing them and is having an affair. Is that too trite to be actually happening. No.
Does he have a best friend? Ask him what to do.
Hope this helps.
