Living with someone who suffers from bipolar disorder presents a set of problems all its own. Here are some resources which might be useful for you.
The following books:
Loving Someone With Bipolar Disorder by Julie A. Fast and John D. Preston
When Someone You Love Is Bipolar by Cynthia G. Last
The following websites:Help For Surviving Your Spouse's Mental IllnessBipolar Significant OthersThe Bipolar Spouse
There is also a forum for significant others in NAMI's Online Communities
And one for family and friends at Pendulum.org
I hope you find these links useful. I'll be placing them in the sticky Bipolar Disorder Resources thread as well.
