I'm not sure how to start this or even what to say but I don't know what to do anymore....I'll try to keep it short.......
I have been in a relationship for 3 1/2 years and in November 2014 my boyfriend was diagnosed with bipolar.
The diagnosis was a bit of a relief because it gave an explanation to many things however I'm not sure how to continue forward. We have many ups and downs as I'm sure most couples do and in the recent months I felt as if we were moving forward rather than being in constant arguments.
The past 3 days have been horrendous and I believe it's me that is the problem as I cannot help but take things personally, I cannot walk away from someone who blames me for every single thing that goes wrong in his life, or the other end of the scale I cannot go 2 days living with someone who literally ignoreds me, to the point where I wonder if I'm going insane. I can't even be upset myself (I suffer with Rheumatiod arthritis too so I do have down days) because he turns the situation around to be about him and I end up feeling guilty because he feels down. I feel I have nothing more to give because every single discussion turns into an argument about how I ruin his life, how I use him and abuse him. I admit that I argue and I am definitely far from being a saint but I am positive that I do not rule his life therefore I don't know how EVERYTHING is my fault?
Can anyone help or is anyone in the same kind of situation as me?
