Hi Pumkin, a warm welcome to the forum and thanks for posting here. Your post is very 'ouch' - I hope you're doing OK under the circumstances?
There are two types of bipolar disorder, both of which form part of a cluster of mood disorders. The condition cannot be cured but it can certainly be controlled with medication. People with the condition who are compliant in terms of taking their medication are generally very functional and found in all walks of life and professions.
Thank you Labyrinth for answering and I agree with you. Pumkin, it is very possible that your bf's behaviour has little to do with his having a bipolar condition. Trust me here - your love and devotion won't change anything.
This may be a good time to make a fresh start and walk away from what sounds like a very uncomfortable space.
