I honestly think that getting back together was the wrong decision at this point. I'm not any happier back together with him than I was when we were just friends. In fact, I think I feel worse. We are fighting a lot more than I am okay with and I am constantly getting my feelings hurt. I don't know how to break it off because he and I are so close but I don't think I can go on this way for very much longer. I gave him Loving Someone with Bipolar a month ago and he has yet to even look at the first page. I'm upset that he isn't taking things as seriously as I want him to. We are having fights all the time that I honestly think wouldn't occur if he would just read the book and realize what I'm upset about instead of him immediately getting defensive and thinking that I want another fight. I don't know what to do. I'm miserable. I love him so much but he makes me so miserable, I don't see the point. I should have just moved on when I had the chance because I don't think I can break up a second time.

Sometimes I just have to take it one day at a time. Just because today you don't
feel like you can break up with him doesn't mean that it can't happen later.

My husband also doesn't read but he did agree to go to marriage counselling.
It has helped us tremendously. Is your boyfriend open to couples counselling that has a main
focus of communication. Failed communication is the no.1 reason, (that and financial difficulty,)
that gave us problems. You have to both want the relationship for it to work.

Another thing that has helped me through the years is knowing that I can only work on
myself and that I can not control people places or things. You have
to do what is best for you. Your happiness matters!!!
