This is a question Crappy relationships

"Recently," Broken Arrow tells us, "The missus informed me that her brother was moving with us." What has your partner done that's convinced you the magic's gone? "Breathe" is not an answer.

Well done for surviving.
I can't even imagine what that was like for you. Let me guess - was she a manic-depressive?

You're proof that it's not only the people with the condition that suffer, but also those that care for that person. Unfortunately, not everyone understands that. Sometimes not even the person with the illness (though of course I don't know if that applied in your case).

I have nothing but admiration for the compassion you still show her. My exes weren't ill; they were just evil. It's so much easier to understand if there's a medical condition behind it, and you obviously understand that it wasn't a personal thing - it was the illness doing those things. I honestly don't know if I could have dealt with that as well as you obviously have.

one of my uni mates
turned into a scouser when she was having a manic episode. It was very odd. She'd moved from Liverpool some 15 years earlier to live near Bournemouth and had no trace of a scouse accent most of the time.
