Our expert says:
Sounds like she was prepared to leave you for someone else, without respecting how that made you feel, but now her next lover has left her, she wants you to act as a replacement, probably temporarily, until she finds someone else. She may well be looking for attention or wanting to blackmail and manipulate you into doing what she wants. If so, as there is a child involved, especially one so young, that is irresponsible.
You are right, of course, to have a primary concern for the welfare of the child. Maybe this should be discussed with Child Welfare who should check whether she is reliably fit to care for the child and whether there is any risk to the child. And maybe, if she is under treatment as she should be ( definitely if she has bipolar Disorder ) discuss this also with the psychiatrist treating her.
Sorry for the delay in responding, but my instructions were ignored. This forum was supposed to be CLOSED to all messages throughout Thursday 21st and right through Monday 25th and only to re-open on Tuesday 26th. As my instructions were ignored I am horrified to discover a very large number of questions that should not have been possible to post, which have of course been unanswered while I was away. This makes me very angry and disappointed. I will try to respond as best I can, though very long message cannot possibly achieve full attention.
