This Is What Dating A Bipolar Person Feels Like
So I can maintain that surreal cocoon of happiness. I have actually been accused (more than once) of cheating, because of this habit of mine. To hide out during the storm.
This accusation in particular just guts me. I’m thinking, “here I am, killing myself on a 60 mile bike ride, saving you from having to deal with this part of my life, trying to exorcise (or literally exercise) the demons, and you accuse me of infidelity because I won’t answer my phone?”
I wish I could communicate all of these thoughts, but some days, even sending a text message explaining how I feel is cripplingly overwhelming.
So why bother dating a bipolar human at all?
What benefit could possibly come from this dynamic?
I can tell you, while I may be a challenging partner at some intervals, I think my abnormal brain makes me pretty cool.
