So i read all the posts on friendship and I am just trying to understand. Made a friend about a year ago (she has bipolar-I do not). We became close rather quickly. Seemed to bond fast. I had no idea...until right before her breakdown. Started acting bizarre.-probably manic. I pretty much figure on my own she is bipolar. loved her to death so I educated myself.(which is why I am here.- hung with her for months during her breakdown-always let her know I was there-even when she never replied. She eventually came out. Starting being more honest about her condition-(just referrs to it as "her mental illness". I Kinda pick up on her major trust issues. So with time I figure -I will earn her trust. (because she is worth itt). I felt I had just about earned that trust then...BAM----went to visit her at work one day -I was with another friend...she seemed to freak out a bit-was kinda rude to my friend(but thats ok). I Kinda sensed that. Sooo_I try and contact her several times-and I can't get a reply from her for nothing.....so help me out....am I not worth it in her eyes, has she lost all trust in me.....don't know what to do. How do I let her know that her illness is something I can and will deal with. She is an amazing person and I would so value her friendship.....but know I am the one afraid of getting hurt......ugh I don't know Thanks guys
