This is my first post on this site and is actually the first time I've tried looking online for support. I was diagnosed bipolar about two years ago. I've really been having trouble lately with relationships (friendships and with my boyfriend) and I'm really wondering if my behavior is typical for bipolar people. So how do I describe what's been going on? Well, for starters I am really flakey. I say that I'll do something and never do it. I also tell my boyfriend I love him and then the next day want to break up with him (even though nothing has gone wrong). I think a lot of problems in my relationships are caused by my amazing ability to completely shut off all emotions. For example, I will tell my boyfriend that I really deeply love him without any feeling on my end whatsoever. Also, when it comes to friends I avoid confrontation of any kind like the plague and can shut off my connection with them at any time. I don't know if this all makes any sense, but if anyone has had any similar experiences and wants to help me out, I would really appreciate it. To sum it all up, whenever I read about bipolar behavior I only read about the shopping sprees and then the deep depression but I am wondering if my illness causes me to have everyday interaction troubles with others. Thanks for listening!

I tried to revive him but he was long gone so I sat there rocking him as I walled. It was devastating to say the least. It has taken me many yrs of therapy to get my life back . They were very difficult times for me . All I wanted...
