I posted a plea for advice in the relationship forum but dealing with bipolar (LAMICTAL) I felt it prudent to post here too. I am fearful that during a Manic episode lasting 2-3 weeks I conviced a woman I love (with a 7yr girl) to move in with me and start a family (i have a 6yr girl). After speaking with my Doc she immediately saw it and slap serquel on me which has leveled me out. Now though I realize I can not do this I have committed to something I can't possible handle. I told her when we first started dating I was Bipolar, and she indepentaly sought out info on it. But both of us where caught up in new love. SO my mania went unnoticed until I explained me goings on to my doc. How do I tell a woman I do care about that the committment I made to be a father to her daughter was nothing more than a ramble during an episode. I have NEVER had such a screw up during a swing. I have made bad decisions whild on an up or down swing but never this bad. The collateral damage is SO HIGH. Any thoughts or advice are appreciated. I think anyone out there w/ Bipolar knows the ups and downs. Thanks again
