Bipolar And Religion

My fiance has been diagnosed Bipolar and Borderline Personality Disorder for over 20 years. For the past two years she has not been taking medication because she is a recent member of the Church of Scientology and they absolutely are against meds to help her. She is only a member because that through "their" organization they convinced her they can help "cure" her. she thinks she is "cured". Oh and now she displays all the symptoms that everyone talks about on this forum. She will not listen when we have discussions about the aforementioned facts.

Has anyone else every experienced this? If so, how did you deal with the situation to shed some light on the afflicted individual.

To head things off at the pass:   I am not a Scientologist, do not and will not subscribe to Scientology. Please do not preach to me. I am a Christian and I am doing everything I can to steer her down a different religious path.

I am so sorry to hear of your pain and frustration with your spouse. I too am a Christian. I married a man seven years ago because I never felt so loved and he was a Christian. After we married I realized he must have a mental disorder. When he was good, he was "in the word" but when he was not he wasn't. We divorced after he got physical with me, but I have not been able to move on and neither has he. We have spent a year apart and are seeing each other again. I love him so much, but he will not get help. He did however go on meds after the divorce and was good for some time until he decided he didnt need them anymore. Now, I better not ask or he will lose it. He believes that We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us...and so do I but that means, use what God has provided and seek help from the professionals. I am so sorry for you...I know your pain more than I can express here. I too, do not know what to do as I am so unhappy without him. I will pray for you. Maggie
