My boyfriend of 7 years left me in January of this year. It came as a real suprise to me, but he claims that he had been telling me for a long time that he couldn't take my depression anymore. I'm Bi-Polar and lost both of my parents w/in 2 months of each other which sent me into a downward spiral. I don't remember alot of things from that time due to overmedication and lots of other things,etc. but it became so bad that I went to the doctor one day and came home to find him with his stuff packed and gone the next day. Just like that. He claimed that after 6 months we would try it again. Well, it's November and he has since bought a house in another state and has told me that we can be friends but we'll never be lovers again. I just can't believe this. I still love him so much. I don't understand how you can leave someone you claim to love and not look back. I've done everything that he's asked of me and still he refuses to consider us getting back together. I can't let go. I think of him constantly, I dream about him and the thought of even touching another man makes me ill. I love him. My question is: how do you get over someone you still love when they don't love you. We have remained "friends" but it's killing me inside. He's the type of man who won't be long without a woman and then I know I'll die inside. Any suggestions on how to convert a love relationship to a friendship and be happy for him or do I just stay miserable/suicidal? Any thoughts? Please!

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
