My fiancé was diagnosed with bipolar
disorder about four months ago. I don't know what to do.
Sometimes he wants me around and begs me not to go to
work. He gets upset when I'm tired because it
seems to him that I'm ignoring him. And other times, he
doesn't want me to touch him or to be around him because
he says it makes him sad and he doesn't want me around
his friends, either. In the past, before he was
medicated, he was abusive and he says that looking at me
makes him feel guilty about the things he did. He
doesn't want to break up; he still wants the
relationship. Is this normal for bipolar disorder? Why
is he doing this? Please help.
