An example of my SO:

We went to the grocery store a few weeks ago, and he wanted soup crackers. They didn’t have the kind he wanted, and I grabbed another kind, asked him if those were okay, and he said no, so I put them back.

10:30 am He calls me today and says “Where did you hide the soup crackers?

I said “We have no soup crackers”

He says “Remember when we went shopping?”

I said “Yes, they didn’t have them, and the other kind I picked out you didn’t want”

He says "'So, you didn't get any soup crackers?"

He says “That's just Wonderful.” (very sarcastic and mean voice) and hangs up on me.

11:30 an So, I go on my lunch break, call him to say I'm going to safeway and I'll pick some up, OF COURSE he doesn't answer my call, so I DON'T pick up any soup crackers.

1:38 PM he calls, asks if I picked up soup crackers, I say no, and he proceeds to tell me he's picking some up at the new grocery store that just opened, and starts talking about the store and his day....

How do I deal with this? I don't know how to address this, because he acts like it never happens (he acts like that all the time)

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi 23 and welcome. I'm one of the BP's around here.

Here's what I see, and I hope you don't take offense, but I'll be frank. Your SO hangs up on you over something as stupid as soup crackers and you're willing to go to the store to buy him crackers on your lunch break?!?! MY husband would be buying his own crackers for the rest of his ever-loving life and he'd be buying me flowers while he was at the store to apologize for being such a ****on the phone. The problem isn't his bipolar disorder, 23, it's your inability to hold him responsible for his nasty and childish behavior. If this really happens all the time, and if he can't treat you with respect, then bipolar disorder or not, you need to move on.

As any of the spouses on this board will tell you -- being in a long term relationship with someone diagnosed with BP is really difficult, even when the two people are in super-loving, super-committed relationships. If you don't at least have that, then you don't need all the other baggage that goes with it.

best of luck,
