My boyfriend is bipolar and we're in a long distance relationship. He is usually normal unless he accidentally upsets me which in turn makes him very upset. When his medication changes he acts different and doesn't want to skype me at all unlike usual when he always wants to. I never know how to help him or if there's anything to do to make him more comfortable. I've tried asking him about it but he doesn't want to talk to me about it so I need advice! Any ideas on how to be supportive and caring during this period even when he gets mean/rude to me?

I am new to this group. Is this group for only people who have bipolar or can it be someone who is dating someone who is bipolar?
I've been so happy, motivated, and just doing well for about 3 weeks, but now I'm down again. No one besides my therapist and I know that I have bipolar disorder because my parents don't believe in mental illnesses, but the whole therapy thing is super complicated. She's not really my therapist, but she's the closest thing I've got. I don't know how to explain what it is that I am going through...
