And was struggling heavily to keep it under control. If your wondering where it's tied heavily towards it something to do with setting up goals for herself and never completing them resulting in her beating herself up about it.
If she's struggling heavily, she needs professional assistance - your romantic partner is not a substitute for a proper therapist and medication. When she's on the up, it'll be like a fairytale, but then the lows will be a living hell for her (and you) unlike nothing you've ever experienced before.
Well no, since I'm heterosexual. But if it was a handsome guy who suffered from bi-polar disorder and severe depression, I wouldn't. I used to be into a guy who was depressed and it was exhausting. I wasn't in the greatest position myself at the time, so it only made things worse. Even though I pulled myself out of my own depression and I'm now feeling much better, I still wouldn't do it. It just causes too much trouble and I'm scared that he would get way too dependent on me, or that it would otherwise but a massive strain on the relationship.
Sounds like me in this description. The answer is no, no one wants to date us because they think we're crazy and they aren't willing to give the emotional support. It's why I've decided to never tell anyone I date that I have bipolar disorder, ever, not even if we marry, they don't have the right to know.
I've seen the end result of a loved one marrying a bi-polar, depressive narcissist and I'll tell you it's very heartbreaking. It changes the person completely. You basically sacrifice your sanity most of the time with you try loving someone with severe emotional issues. This girl may be a great person and overcome a lot of her problems so I'm only speaking in a general sense.
