It's sounds to me like she's using avoidance to not face guilt feelings.
Is this semi-normal for bipolars to behave this way? You should be the one who she goes home to, not him. It's very sweet that you trust her, but if she is having episodes, she is not in her right mind and her judgement is impaired.Most can manage their disorder through medication and therapy.Individuals learn to watch out for triggers that may send them spinning into an exaggerated mood state.She could recount every failed Everest expedition in mesmerizing detail -- the sort of a talent I would expect of a rock climber, not someone who'd never gone camping. Then I found out."There's something you should know about me," she said, a couple of hours into the date. I tried to remember if I'd sipped from her drink."I'm bipolar," she said."Good," I replied."I hope it doesn't scare you off."Panicked thoughts raced through my mind. This was the odd humor Sara and I had already established, but I wasn't entirely joking.
