I do not have bipolar disorder myself. The frist boyfriend I was ever with, however, was severly bipolar and I have come to know the monster this disorder is very well. Today, we are both in our 20's have have been in each others lives since 17. I have now lost interest in (lets say...) Jake and wish to move on. We want different things from life and it is apperent to me this relationship won't work; I have even met someone new. When I tried to voice this to Jake, he stopped talking to me and according to his family, became sucidical for a few days (till I could establish contact with him again.)I told him I would stay with him. I personally know I am doing this for the sake of him not doing anything regrettable. Though I feel awful (and sluttish) for juggling two men, and though Jake's bipolar disorder has nothing with me break it off, how should I tell him it won't work without triggering him into an episode?
