    Hello justinallen,

     

    With all due respect, I feel you could benefit from a NAMI support group for people affected by their loved ones' mental illnesses.  Call 1 (800) 950-NAMI (6264) to find a meeting in your area.

     

    From what you've told us, I feel your girlfriend isn't ready to be in a committed relationship.  You've only been...

    Hello justinallen,

     

    With all due respect, I feel you could benefit from a NAMI support group for people affected by their loved ones' mental illnesses.  Call 1 (800) 950-NAMI (6264) to find a meeting in your area.

     

    From what you've told us, I feel your girlfriend isn't ready to be in a committed relationship.  You've only been together six months, and I feel that's too soon to know if this relationship is "the one," or even just the one you want to be in for now.

     

    You need to protect your own health, and I'm not sure being in this relationship is going to be any easier down the line.  Be prepared for a lot of hard times if your girlfriend refuses to take her meds and continues to be abusive towards you.  A split lip is no joke.

     

    Please, think carefully about how to proceed.  If you truly love her and she returns this feeling in a healthy way, then you have a chance of working things out.  But only if she gets in treatment.

     

    I'm sorry, but if this was me, I'd think twice.

     

    Respectfully,

    Chris

      I'm sorry if this is out of subject, but what is the difference between schizophrenia and bipolar disorder?

      Schizophrenia is a thought disorder that could have a mood component.

       

      Symptoms: hallucinations (auditory or visual), delusions, paranoia, disorganized thinking, flat affect, lack of volition.

       

      Bipolar is a combination of depression and mania, sometimes with psychosis or delusions in the manic phase.  Various sub-types of bipolar can be diagnosed. ...

      Bipolar is a combination of depression and mania, sometimes with psychosis or delusions in the manic phase.  Various sub-types of bipolar can be diagnosed.  The mania is hyper-elevated unless it is hypomania, and the depression is lower than low, sometimes leading in the manic stages to binge shopping (charging thousands of dollars in a feel-good buying spree) or in the depressive moods the consideration of suicide, which could be an impulsive act if the person has come out of the depression and has the energy to go through with it.

    My ex-girlfriend is what you described in your post to the T. For her birthday I got out of work at 10pm and had arranged for her parents to leave the back door open so I could suprise her with a cake. I get in her house and shes sleeping so I gently woke her up cake in hand and when she opened her eyes she flipped, she told me to get the **** out and F me and F my cake and I hate you, needless to say I left. But we had dated for over a year and it was always like that. You can keep dating at the risk of your own sanity but make sure you get meds into the picture
