Well I've never posted on this bored before. But I thought you guys would understand and maybe can help me understand a little bit better too. I am engaged to a man who is bipolar. he is also in prison right now and has alcoholic addictions. But, I always get letters from him and I never know what to expect. Even when he was out I never knew what to expect. Sometimes I get letters that are so loving and caring and then days like today he just completely changes his tune. I know for a while he was really suffering and he had to switch medications. He was depressed and irritable and would jump down my throat if I said the wrong thing. Well I wrote him a letter saying I wanted to go to Al-Anon to get some support because of him yes but also because I grew up with addicts. So I thought it might help me and got really angry about it and said I would have nothing in common with anyone and it was a bad idea and that because I asked for his support that it meant I felt he wasn't supporting me. And I was acting like he didn't love me and that I didn't want to write him anymore I have no clue where he comes up with this stuff. He twists what I say or just makes stuff up or maybe he really believes it I'm not sure. One minute he is so sweet and then today he told me to stop writing him and just to leave him because he didn't care anymore. To be honest I never know if it's him or just another bipolar episode talking. Anyway sorry to vent I'm just a bit stressed and if anyone has any thoughts that would be great.
