Talking to them doesn't help.
Exactly what do you mean by deal with. I have clients with bipolar disorder. Dealing with on a professional level is different from dealing with on a personal level. Also technically bipolar is just another name for manic depressive. Honestly, it depends. First of, you need to realize your limits. If they are draining you, you need to get out. There's no ifs ands or buts about it. You need to take care of yourself. Bipolar is also not an excuse for bad behavior or treating you badly. So, dont allow it. Yes, they can feel whatever they feel. But it is not ok to make you feel bad or manipulate you in any way. And at the end of the day, if you cannot get through, then you need to let it go. A mental disorder is never an excuse for a person's behavior (unless they're psychotic, which is a whole other story). A person always makes a choice. And they have to be accountable for their actions. And yes, this is coming from someone who's been diagnosed and deals with mental disorders. I may understand it. But I dont excuse it.
idk...i gess the best way is to wrk with em...plus everybodys diff me & 2 of my frnds r bipolar & even 4 me its always changing...if im depr i like someone to stick with me til im better but i also require some downright alone time too...u need to tell the person to let u kno wat he/she needs & wrk with it 4m thr...its very difficult and complicated but wr not totaly impossible! lol
