My name is Rob, Thanks for all of your posts. I am learning more about Bipolar and realize that the breakups are just part of the cycling, and I am more at peace knowing this is not my fault. I dedicate this post to my beautiful Lisa, who I have known for 30 years, who made my dreams come true by being my girlfriend, for the two 3 month stretches this past year, and they were suddenly dashed twice by this horrible illness. Although we are in no contact, she will always be in my heart. I have to move on with my life, even though I know that she may contact me again during her " up " period. There may be another man that comes along, as there have been a few that I have known of in the past. The future is so uncertain as she has requested not to receive my calls or texts. I will always cherish the time that we have shared, and how when she is at her best, she makes me want to be at my best. Bless you all for reading and contributing.

Hi Rob,

I don't understand the subtleties of bi-polar, I'm plain old vanilla depression; but I'm well aware of the damage any kind of depression can bring to our relationships. Sounds like you've got things under control.

Sometimes that's enough.

Take care.

Lisa is my bipolar ex-girlfriend. She broke up with me again 12 days ago. I thought she was my soulmate, but this illness has ripped her from me. There is no other lady in my life. It is hard to compare any other woman to her when she is at her best. I want her in my life but I dont want the hot and then cold breakup cycles to continue. We are currently are in no comtact and I plan to date others. For now I am brokenhearted and on my own. ((((EHUGS))))

Hello Rob,

Welcome to the forum! I am happy you joined us.

Break-ups can be hard as we go through the different stages. I am sorry it did not work out for you and your girlfriend. Bipolar does have it's ups and downs which causes one to react in different ways.
How are you doing today? Are you really okay?

I am glad that you are moving on. Moving on can be tough sometimes especially when you've known someone for quite a long time. Please use this time to focus on your and take care of yourself. Dealing with someone who is Bipolar can be stressful to you as well.

Please know that we are here for you.
