I didnвЂ™t begin seriously dating until halfway through college, after my first bipolar episode. So, i’ve never dated somebody without the need to deal with my mood condition at some time. With my very first relationship, for the very first month or two, I attempted to disguise my despair. I made it seem like it was just a part of my past, not something I would be battling again and again when it was eventually brought up. I became in denial rather than ready to accept talking about it. I do believe that maybe not being open about despair actually managed to make it much harder on us. Now, years later on, my bipolar disorder diagnosis is not at all something we make an effort to conceal through the individual I date.
These past few years, IвЂ™ve created a list of вЂњdoвЂ™sвЂќ and вЂњdontвЂ™sвЂќ when it comes to my mood disorder and dating through my experiences
