I did son’t begin seriously dating until halfway through college, after my first episode that is bipolar. Therefore, We have never ever dated some body and never have to deal with my mood condition at some time. With my relationship that is first the initial month or two, we attempted to full cover up my depression. I made it seem like it was just a part of my past, not something I would be battling again and again when it was eventually brought up. I became in denial rather than available to discussing it. I believe that maybe not being available about despair really managed to make it much harder on us. Now, years later on, my disorder that is bipolar diagnosis not at all something we attempt to conceal through the individual we date.
Through my experiences these previous several years, I’ve created a listing of “do’s” and “dont’s” in terms of my mood condition and dating
1. Don’t assume my thoughts are simply some type of a “bipolar thing. ”
I’ve a right to enjoy a wide variety of feelings without them being evaluated as some function of the mood condition.
