I didn’t begin seriously dating until halfway through college, after my first episode that is bipolar. Therefore, I have never ever dated some body and never having to deal with my mood condition at some time. With my relationship that is first initial couple of months, I attempted to full cover up my depression. I made it seem like it was just a part of my past, not something I would be battling again and again when it was eventually brought up. I happened to be in denial rather than ready to accept speaking about it. I think that perhaps maybe not being available about despair really managed to make it more difficult on us. Now, years later on, my disorder that is bipolar diagnosis not a thing I you will need to conceal through the individual we date.
These past few years, I’ve created a list of “do’s” and “dont’s” when it comes to my mood disorder and dating through my experiences
1. Don’t assume my thoughts are simply some sort of a “bipolar thing.
