A guy I am dating is bipolar. As I've spent more time with him I am starting to better understand his moods and though it has been difficult I am trying my best to understand him and be there for him. We were supposed to have plans to go to New York together this weekend when he suddenly felt very overwhelmed and anxious and said that he wanted to take separate modes of transportation. He told me that he was feeling aggravated and that it wasn't my fault and that his mind was treating me as hostile. He said he felt overwhelmingly anxious and didn't know if I was the cause of it but he wanted to find out. I feel awful because I feel like maybe I asked too many questions, or overwhelmed him in trying to make plans. I asked him if he wanted to go separate ways or not talk to me anymore and he said he doesn't make decisions when he's in pain. I don't want to make things worse for him, yet I need to feel secure too. Anyone have experience with this and have any advice on how to proceed?
its hard to understand because there are so many variations that differ from individual to individual.
