I have lived with someone with bipolar disorder for five years now. Not only is the bipolar disorder a battle, but the choices to use other things to self-medicate has created multiple addictions to overcome as well. Pills, alcohol, marijuana, and sex are a few. Compulsive sexual behavior is really affecting the relationship I have with this person. I am SO tired of the lies and rollercoaster. I feel like I am going crazy! They refuse to seek medical help or counseling services, and continues to lie and get caught up in compulsive behavior. I love this person very much, but I need to establish boundaries. No one I know completely understands what kind of a position I am in or what this does to me personally. I'm looking for anyone that can offer advice and support for either myself or my loved one.

Hi BZG4 It may be an idea to go and talk to someone in regards to the person that you are having a relationship with your G.P or a counseller maybe able to help. It is such a difficult situation for you as you feel deeply for this person. Take care sweetie always here but remember you need to take care of yourself too.Piglit
