Maybe you could show a bit of compassion and understanding before rushing to label people.
They are all very different things. Illness can make people self centred for various reasons. You need to take to him asbout it.

Firstly, there is no such such thing as 'bipolar OCD'. He may suffer from both, but they are separate disorders.<br />
Secondly, OCD has nothing whatsoever to do with selfishness
Speaking as someone who has OCD... I can honestly say I am not selfish. Actually I get used and abused quite often because I am a giver. Maybe it's because I also have ADHD?? ()<br />
With that said I have come across quite a few bipolar people and quite frankly.... Unless you have a stubborn and strong personality, that is a roller coaster of emotions you don't want to be on.
OCD is vague in how the person is. They can be OCD in ANYTHING. That includes helping people and many other things. Bipolar on the other hand can change him and his moods. However being selfish maybe who he is, it maybe you being selfish about him. You may have issues. Its something sometimes you need to look more into and talk to him more about things. However just just bust out that hes the problem. FInd a dual way to work together.
Good to see that you have labelled him as selfish, maybe this is part of his illness
Hes not being selfish. He may get wrapped up in his own world but I suffer from pretty severe OCD and depression coupled with tourettes and anger management problems. I assure you that hes not purposefully being selfish, he may be breaking down on the inside. Try patience, and see things how he sees them.
