This admittedly for him is the most difficult part.
He calls it my "Notebook mood." There have been some truly long and difficult years between us, but he has learned to enjoy the moments when I am fully there and we love intensely because neither of us knows when I will be gone again, like Allie in The Notebook.
He once told me my mental health was for me to figure out which is not a good way to get a golden ticket to my heart!
I expect my partner to be supportive and after 29 years of marriage we need to reevaluate.
I can experience being stable, manic, depressed, indifferent, and worst of all, suicidal.
Those with rapid cycling, like me, can experience multiple moods in a week or within a single day.
I myself, cycle between moods per day, per week, and sometimes per month.
It is especially challenging when a partner has bipolar disorder.
Even the best and most solid relationships can often be difficult.
