Mental patients dating
When I was manic, I was severely irritable – and I could go from 1-100 in terms of anger within a couple of minutes.
Arguments turned into screaming matches, and I would become dangerous.
Abusive behavior in an intimate or dating relationship and mental illness are two separate things.
We know that abuse in a dating relationship is about power and control, and that an abusive partner usually will not show their negative or harmful behaviors with friends, coworkers or family members.
I am so happy that you have overcome things, especially getting off medications, and now being in a loving and stable relationship. Yes, anything you can share with me would be great.

It just makes me feel that my illness holds me back from someone who has alot to offer but does not know how to offer it. I also suffered (and diagnosed later) from a very early age (5 or 6, I think) from Tourette Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.I’d often deal with my anger by self-harming, which would make my partner feel uncomfortable and upset, knowing they were unable to hate me.Basically, I was a living with a volcano – ready to erupt at any time.I have bipolar type 1, which means I have more manic episodes than low – though, when I’m low, I feel as though it’s the end of the world.Bipolar disorder has dramatically affected my relationships.
