I'm a lesbian and I'll be turning 20 in February, but I've been talking to a woman who's 43. I have no problem with the age difference, but Mari does. And my cousins', who are also Mari's roommates, have huge issues with it all. They don't know anything for sure as of yet, but they have their obvious suspicions and came right out and asked Mari about us. Mari, of course, denied it all, but it's not just having to hide it all that's getting in our way. Mari's wife passed away last February and she's not ready to date yet. I understand that and we talk about Robyn all the time. She knows I'm there for her and I'm always willing to listen and answer whatever questions I am capable of answering. I guess I'm just wondering if I'm wasting my time or if she'll be able to get past the age difference enough for us to be together when the time comes that she finds herself wanting to date again. What do you think of the age difference? 43 and 19, that's 24 years difference. Just numbers to me, but they're numbers a lot of people don't want to hear. It scares me because I can tell we're both starting to fall for each other, even this quickly, but what if that's pointless? I mean, we've both told each other that we love each other. But, what if no one will let us be happy together because we're so different in age? We're pretty well the same maturity and intelligence levels, so that's not an issue, it's ONLY the numbers, so what do you think? Thank you, Mandi.

I obsess on everything especially conversations I have had with other people. I have bipolar depression and OCD. I read that obsessing is a bipolar thing but am still confused. I am always confused. I ruminate about things I have said to anyone and everyone. Am I alone ???
So I'm going to jump right into it. I just found this group and I'm hoping if I share my thoughts and feelings with others who are going through the same as me, that I won't feel so alone. I was diagnosed with type 2 Bipolar Disorder sometime in 2019. I've had this chemical imbalance for most of my life but it didn't become real until after I was diagnosed. I've lost friends, family, jobs,...
