Emotional Response to Bipolar

Poets and authors have tried to define love for centuries, whereas scientists have only recently started. Many of us know intuitively that love is a major purpose for living; that connection is inherent in all that we do, and without love, we cannot survive as a species.


If you read my last blog you’ll remember that I’m on my third divorce. Grant it that the divorce rate is no higher than the general public. I guess in hind sight I made selfish choices.


But bipolar disorder raises a lot of unfriendly emotions. You are not alone if you alternately feel anger, fear, guilt, hopelessness and many other emotions that feel uncomfortable.


When you fall in love, you probably don’t expect that bipolar will play such a large role in your relationship. Maintaining a loving relationship has enough problems as it is, without having to deal with being bipolar and its troubles as well.


Intense feelings are completely normal, but they may feel out of your control……both yours and your partners.


The truth is that you’re going to feel what you feel whether you think it’s wrongs, disloyal, or even mean. Your feelings are not controlled by your intellect and you can’t tell them what they should do. Listen to your feelings and learn from them, so you can take the actions that are right for you.
