I’m too scared to let someone in as a romantic partner. I’ve had a huge wall up since I was diagnosed at 18. My heart was shattered and I never truly recovered. I’m 28 now. How do you guys let people in and be vulnerable? When and how do you tell a potential partner?

      I guess I got to know my boyfriend and his perspective on life before I opened up. I found that he was nonjudgmental and had been with someone else who had bipolar so I felt like he understood me more. That helped. He is so supportive of me, always encouraging me, and he has never thrown my diagnosis in my face or treated me like im sick. When I’ve struggled he just talked to me like I was normal. I dunno maybe I found a good one but he has always pushed me to be a better person.

      Same I would love to know, my biggest fear is finally opening up to someone and then they use my diagnosis later down the road to bring back up to me as if that’s the cause of potential relationship problems
