You rock. You're hear, looking for ways to help her, and that's way more than most friends would do. Thank you for that, on behalf of most of us here (I'd bet.)
Listening is SO important, so as long as you can stand it, keep it up. Keep telling her she's not crazy, keep encouraging her to take her meds, get to her doc appointments, discourage her from using drugs or alcohol if you can. And just try and be a loving friend. Those are SO rare for people with BP. I can't even tell you. If she's really trusting, you can offer to go to appointments if she needs some support, but that's really above and beyond. I like that someone said to tell her about this site. That's a great idea.
Thanks for joining in. Hope to see you back!
