I have been dating my boyfriend for 6 months and he is just so different than when I met him. (Btw I'm 17 almost 18 and he is 19) He used to hold doors open and we enjoyed the late night talks on his porch before I had to leave. Things were fine for a few months and then things started going bad. I started getting really annoyed of him. He got really clingy and he still won't give me much space. He has a mental illness that is just progressively getting worse. His mental illness along with my bipolar, school to focus on, and starting a new job is so much pressure. I don't know what to do and I need help. When I try to talk to him about my feelings about it he just gets really upset and starts crying and it makes me feel bad. I'm scared to break up with him because I know he will freak out and might get sent to the regional center. Help?

Wow... so many issues you both have... maybe wait until you grow up a little bit more and, since you're not extremely stable (psychologically) - bipolar, you should find someone who IS.
This helps a lot.
Wait for a few more years and find someone who will keep your grounded.2
