Dating a bipolar schizophrenic
While other disorders, such as depression and anxiety, may work in cycles or waves, Bipolar Disorder requires constant, vigilant management.
The disorder is typically managed by daily medication and talk therapy.
To my understanding it is basically a combination of Bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
I experience the manias of Bipolar and the symptoms of Schizophrenia.
Relationships Background: At the age of four I began developing crushes on my female counselors but was too young to understand my feelings.
Throughout grade school I've had similar crushes on classmates with the same lack of understanding my own feeling.
I figured this forum would be better suited via the second half of the topic.
Mental Illness Background: I have schizoaffective disorder.
Now I've been with him over a year and he has always been jealous.
My boyfriend just told me that he was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.
I knrw that he had something but i couldn't figure it out.
People who have Bipolar Disorder often have a hard time sleeping.
It's not unusual for someone unmedicated with this disorder to be up for two or three days straight because their mind and body simply won't let them sleep.
