Our expert says:
Its difficult if you hacve had previous experiences in life which have made it hard for you to trust a girl, and you meet a loveable girl who has Bipolar Disorder. Because when they go high, into a Manic episode, they will be impulsive, over-active, and just not exercising good judgement at all. When Manic they can very reasonably be hard to trust, and indeed need to be protected from themselves.
And it sounds as though things are indeed getting complicated withi her life, afgfecting you but probably not actually about you. Now, Bipolar Disorder doesn't cause people to block out chunks of their life ; that's more related to an underlying personality disorder, which may be worse and more of a nuisance when they're high.
Give her some time, but not indefinitely ( your own needs and life need to be taken fully into consideration. But don't blame her or yourself if it takes her a while to get sorted out again. It sounds as though her medication hasn't yet found the right combination and dises, maybe she needs something more in addition to the Lithium.
Of course you want to know where you stand. Right now, she probably doesn't know where she stands, so won't be able to tell you that for a while.
SOmeone with an unstable Bipolar Disorder may need someone to watch them and ensure they don't stop their medicinies, don't get into trouble while mani,c and that they keep their shrink appointments
