Hello all. My boyfriend and I have been together for over 6 years, we live together like we are spouses but just over a year ago he seemed to completely lose his mind. His coworkers, friends and family have all come to me and expressed concerns, I did some research spoke to his mother and she told me that his father is Bipolar and she always suspected that he was too. About 2 years ago, he was diagnosed with ADD and put on Adderall. I won't go into all that's going on but everything I have read about Bipolar disorder seems to fit. I realize I'm not a doctor and I am trying not to diagnose him. What I need advice on is how do I approach him to get help? I called his doctor and told him that I was concerned, they told me they can't discuss his medical issues with me, which I understand, but they also said they would discuss this with him on his next visit. The problem is that he doesn't go back to see his doctor, he just calls in for his Adderall refill. Can anyone offer advice on how to talk to him? Everytime I try to discuss this with him, he tells me it's me. That I am trying to control him and that I want something to be wrong in our lives. Help, please.
