First, I must say it is refreshing to know that people are suffering like me.
I am 28 years old. I have been dating a man with bipolar disorder for several years... and he JUST got a medication that has seemed to help a little. I will be honest... it is hell to be around him sometimes. He is insecure, jealous, and miserable. I feel so bad for him... but know I can't help. His disease has kept him from getting a job or a good education. He comes from a good family that has enabled him. Being almost 30, I have a good job and presently writing my thesis for my masters. I feel bad for being successful. My question is this.... how much is too much? How do you know? Am I horrible for giving up on him? Help me make sense of this.
