The adult thing to do when you are in a committed relationship is to fully disclose your Bipolar condition and get emotionally naked about who you are.
But what I never anticipated was the fear that the woman you considered your "Soul Mate" would face when trying to understand "what it looks like"!
It took a gut wrenching "counseling session" for me to realizero that even a seemingly highly evolved potential life
partner may have a mental blind spot when it comes to unconditionally coping with a
partner who lives with a Bipolar condition.
It took a year to be blind sided by that reality and it made me feel like damaged goods! Fortunately I had a circle of family and friends who reminded me that I was made in the image of my creator and I was fine with them and they were ready to love me unconditionally just the way I am!
