My friend who has severe bipolar but has been stable for the last six years is having a breakdown. I don't know what to do to help her. She called me from across the United States to talk to me. She says I'm the only one who understands what she's going through because I have bipolar too. I just became stable during this last two years in fact in may have only been a year ago that I began my road to recovery. She has me scared now that this could happen to me. Does this really happen? A relapse is what she called it. I want to call her but she does better when she calls me. She's very adament about being a leader and that seems to be true when it comes to phone calls as well. I'm very worried about her and now I worry about myself as well. I don't want to have a relapse. Do any of you have relapses or have you in the past?
