I know that one of the characterisitics of bipolar is the issue of overspending and budgeting. I have been with my partner now for two years and money has often come up as an issue. It is not the issue of him not working all the time but more the idea of being responsible with money and taking some ownership over the budget. Is his unrealistic? Am I better off being in charge of the budget completely? I find this a lot of pressure and I don't want it to look condescending like a little kid getting his pocket money every week. I'm finding it hard to distinguish between what his money issues are because of the illness and what is a result of poor parenting in relation to money. Whenever he wanted anything he would go and ask his mum or dad. He is now in a lot of debt to them and they are asking for their money back but they haven't taught him how to deal with money, they've just taught him that it's a never ending resource. Please help...
