Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Thanks so much for writing.
I suspect that you think this was overly-impulsive on his part - and that constitutes Bipolar. Is that right?
His behavior alone doesn't necessarily indicate Bipolar, but what proves he is bipolar is the fact that he has been prescribed Lithium.
Does that help?
If he's unmedicated - that's a slight possibility, but moreover, it's about something else.
What do you mean?
Please explain. I am desperate for a clear answer to understand what has happened to me.
Please help me!
If he is NOT on medication, the reason he did this might be because of his bipolar.
Chances are - it's about something else altogether - what that would be I have no idea.
I am leaving my office for a few hours - so I will be back on later....
People always do better with accepting the breakup of a relationship when they focus on themselves. Because we cannot really always understand other people's thinking - it leaves us going around and around in circles. It's best not to focus on others - and focus on ourselves instead.
You can't control him, therefore trying to figure him out leaves you helpless.
But you can control you and your life - which empowers you to feel stable.
I know it's hard - but try, just for today - to just focus on you. What do you want to do, how do you want to feel, where do you want to go - today and in life in general.
I know you're right. I know I have to focus on me and believe me, I am trying.
I love him.
Although I cannot control how he behaves or feels about me, I still love him.
My greatest wish is that he would come back, because I have not felt about anyone the way I feel about him in a lifetime. This has never happened to me.
Thank you so much for helping me. I will heed your advice and focus on myself. I was doing that before he came into my life and I was doing really well. I had just published a book and was on top of the world. Then he came along and he swept me off my feet. I have been trying to put the pieces of my heart back in my ribcage. It's as if many pieces of me are still out there.
Thank you for your kind help.
You are very welcome!
All the best,
