Hi i'm brand new on this group, so i'm sorry if i'm posting in the wrong area...
I'm not writing for myself but my best friend is been diagnosticated with a bipolar disorder a few months ago.
He took other 3 months before than tell me that and i'm the only person wo knows that so far. No even his family or other friends.
He doesn't want to talk about it, take any meds or go to see a psychiatric as he had terrible experiences when he was a child.
He thinks that a lot of exercise, no alcohol and a regular sleep every day can be enough.
He's not actually having any big change of mood but this is not enough of course.
He's selfish, a liar, self-centric and he can disappear for days because he went who knows where without to say anything.
I don't know if i'm strong enough to help him and I can't force him to go to therapy.
I don't know how to help him. How can you help someone who doesn't want to be help? More: how can you help someone who doesn't realise that this are part of his sickness?
Sorry it's a long post but I don't know actually how to help him... how did you do it?
