Alcoholic & Bipolar Boyfriend

My boyfriend has bipolar disease and is also an alcoholic. He has his good days and his bad days, but lately it seems bad days!! He is a great loving and caring man when he is on his meds and attending AA meetings, but when he is not I do not know what to expect! It sometimes terrifies me! I do not know sometimes if he is going to come home or if he is okay. His brother does not want to have anything to do with him!! My family loves him, but they are afraid he might hurt me. I have had some close calls, but nothing to share.
I am at the point in our relationship that I do not know if I want to continue.... I love him so much, but a person can only take so much.

He will only grt better if he wants to help himself! The alcohol will make the symptoms of the bi polar worse. Is he on meds for the bi polar? Sometimes if you love someone so much you have to set them free, it is important you look after yourself at the moment.
