i have a bipolar boyfriend. and everytime we try and date it throws him into a huge rage issue. not at me but at his parents and they shout and they are big people so its not quiet. i have ocd and anxiety and my anxiety shot right off the roof i am feeling kinda sick right now and my hand tremors and so bad i can barely type this. i really care about him but i dont know if i can deal with the shouting. it hurts me so much even though its not at me. it could be someday if i live with him ever. he was contemplating going off of his meds and i think he actually will and i feel bad because i gave him the idea when i said i am thinking of going off my meds. wrong thing to say. now i know i will regret that and other stuff i said that he will probably tell his parents. what do i do?
p.s. i wasnt going to go off my meds i was kinda making a point that i wish i didnt have to take meds and that i didnt have ocd. i wouldnt go off of my meds because last time i got taken off one of my meds i ended up i the psych ward because i went psychotic and that wasnt my idea but my psych doctors
I feel that you need to really consider the consequences of combining your two disorders in a relationship together, because it sounds like his bipolar rage aggravates your OCD and anxiety. That's not good for either of you, is it? It wouldn't be the best mental health combo. Just let him down gently and seek help for yourself.
yeah i am working on it. i found out the next day that he hadnt taken his meds for a few days and that was why that happened. he has ocd as well as bipolar. i hope that he stops deciding to not take them and be responsible and take them.
