Okay, so here is one of my big questions. Now that I have finally accepted my diagnosis and found a treatment that is working, how do you go about dating again? I am a single mother of two teenagers, and at some point I would like to have a relationship, but the thought of telling someone "oh, and by the way, I also have this little bipolar problem" just seems like too big of a hurdle to overcome. Has anyone made that leap? It would seem like cheating to start the relationship and then once you get close spill the "crazy" beans, but being upfront just seems way too scary. In my past relationships I always found ways to end it (kind of self destructively) before any guy found out I had issues...I have usually 2-3 years between mania's so this gave me some leeway. Any advice? This is my first question for the group so hopefully someone will be able to help out.
