Move on. I'm bipolar also. It is hard for others to tolerate our mood swings. They try to get along and make us happy but they can't. It is chemical and doesn't have to do with them. Until they educate themselves about the disorder they won't understand. Get stable on your medication. Sometimes it takes a few years. It gets better.
I don't really get what your question is.
You want her to be happy. She undoubtedly wants you to be happy.
If you've make a decision to be together, then that means through the good times and the bad.
If things get rough, you do what you have to in order to ride it out together. There's no doubt that your condition will affect her if you're down for extended periods of time.
The best thing you can do for the both of you is to lean on your support network of friends and family when either of you are struggling.
Well, if it were me, I would have to talk it out with her until we knew where we were both standing. If she is only saying these things in moments of extreme irritation, then you wait until you're both calm and discuss it then. Personally, I don't care what "state" your loved one is in... there's no excuse for saying hurtful things like that unless they mean it. You teach people how to treat you.
She would "break down"? Dude, it sounds like she needs professional help. Have you talked to her about talking to her doctor?
That's okay. I lived with my best friend when she developed depression :( She got help and I helped her move interstate to be near her family again. I also hit rock bottom (we worked under a psychopath... she had the sense to leave sooner) but I had a partner help me through. Keep in mind that therapy takes time, and that there's no shortcut... she's going to have to go through it to get to the other side.
is she bipolar, or is she responding to your cycles? are you on meds? meds are not a magic cure-all for everyone, but for some people it makes a world of difference. you should both be getting professional help if you are not. good luck!
sounds like a good plan! you might want to describe your side-effects and see if there's a different med. i know i sound overly pro-med, but i have a friend who was functional on them and without them she's not. and because people have different metabolisms, different ones work for different people. see if you or the therapist can find out what changed around the time she started feeling differently. hang in there!
