Yes, I also have bipolar disorder, and Im finding that quite difficult in addition to liking and being with a man who very possibly has aspergers.
Yet it makes me sensitive to his needs, at the same time sensitive to my wanting so badly to share such with people who I think care about me. What I mean is I feel that I will be put down for my views, and determination not to leave him because of his condition.
There's a very good friend that I suspect will try to dissuade me, and it's causing me distress because I like both of them, with of course in different forms.
I'm diagnosed with depression and schizoid personality disorder alongside autism and ADHD. My depression hasn't troubled me much in 7 years though. However, I still take medication for it and am uneasy about stopping it.
