    Hi, I have a son-in-law who was diagnosed with bi-polar when he was young. My daughter met him a few years ago when he wasn't on any medications. He seems to be able to hide it for a while. Anyway they dated for a few months and that is when she knew something was "off" She tried to make it work but he REALLY can be pretty much on a different planet. She broke it off with him and said he would...

    My ex bp wrote me out of the blue after 5 months of no talking. He dumped me on new years day and told me he didn’t love me anymore. Hell fell off the face of the earth and I didn’t hear from him until a few days ago. He wrote me an email all cherry and sweet, wishing me well, and saying sorry about how he has been distant and then thanking me for all the things I have taught him. He said...

    My husband and I have been separated for a very long time, but always have been working towards getting back together, or at least I was. Our 9 yr anniversary was last week, but he had been on a crazy rampage of verbally abusive texts, seemingly out of nowhere, so I didn't even see him. (Yes he uses drugs, yes he is bipolar) Today, he is sending me pics of him and his "angel", another woman. Oh,...

    Hi All, I need some advice. I am 30 years old and my father is bipolar. He most likely has personality disorder as well. His moods are so bad that he often verbally abuses me and tends to "push, pull" with me and one minute begs me to answer the phone and demands my support, but then the next minute pushes me away and claims I am against him and don't care about him. He definitely exhibits...
