Dating a bipolar drug addict
People with bipolar disorder are constantly trying to figure out what a “normal” and “reasonable” thought process and reaction would be in any given situation.
We’re constantly trying to overcome how our bipolar brain naturally thinks in order to have healthy interactions and healthy relationships.
For others, addiction can involve illegal activities such as exhibitionism, voyeurism, obscene phone calls, child molestation or rape.
Although some people are celibate some not by choice, while others choose celibacy for cultural or religious reasons healthy humans have a strong desire for sex.
Note that research bears this out indicating that people with bipolar disorder have higher rates of obsessive-compulsive disorder than the average population. And, of course, there are all the thoughts that go along with these things.
It seems to me that simply by the virtue of extreme emotional experience, people with bipolar disorder think in the extreme quite frequently. If our boyfriend looks at another girl he must be cheating.
Of course, because people with bipolar have jumped to the extremes – usually negative ones – we sure the heck worry about it once we get there.
Worried and anxious bipolar thoughts are very common and, what’s worse, is that seeing as we also obsess, we tend to obsessively worry or feel obsessively anxious. It’s not very surprising that due to all these odd thoughts, due to all the extreme, obsessive and distracting thoughts that we overreact to situations.
