    New Level To Our Conversations

    After he told me about his conditions, it was important to me to treat him as close to the same as possible.  I am now aware of the "why" behind some of his actions, so can assimilate information more effectively for myself, but I didn't want to treat him differently.  ...

    A Rough Couple Of Days

    This last weekend has been really difficult for my partner.  Depression has hit pretty hard and the long weekend didn't help much.  I tried to be as accessible as possible, but when the person you love is pushing as hard as possible against you, there's not much you...

    We've Made It A Year

    It's been a year (this month) since we began our relationship. There have been hard times, but we communicate as much as possible, and that is our saving grace. I've come to recognize when he's being moody, versus when he's having what some would call an "episode". The hardest...

    It's been two years since I met my soulmate

    and it's also been two years of craziness and push and pull. He's way worse than I am and incredibly insecure. It took him a year and a half to kiss me and then he got so freaked out he wouldn't see me in the same room for 8 months after that but would come in and out of my life...

    Little Struggles: Every Day We Are Given Another Chance.

    It has been almost six months since our relationship transcended friendship.  In those six months, I have been grateful for every day.  This is not to say that every day has been easy or that every day has been without struggle or hardship, because that is not the...

    Dealing With My Own Shortcomings For A Better Tomorrow

    "I believe every person comes into your life when they do for a reason," he said to me when we first started our journey.     If there's one thing that has happened to me since I was entrusted with the news of his disorder, it's that I have become inspired...

    I've Just Found Out, Officially

    I've been seeing a man with borderline personality disorder for about 4 months now and he told me today (a bad day for him) that he wanted me to know.  Truth be told, I knew something was awry with him, but couldn't quite figure what, and didn't want to ask - it's odd to...

    Still Together Through Thick And Thin

    Well, 2011 was really not good. I thought I would update those who read this thread. I am still with the man I started seeing two years ago and I hope to be with him for years to come. It has been a hard road so far, but well worth the work. We are currently struggling to get...
