Our expert says:
The diagnosis is too often used frivolously. It can only usefully be used when someone has been properly assessed by a shrink, who can then discuss treatment options, too.
Obviously, I don't know whether your bf has Bipolar Disorder, but he does sound unhappy, and should be encouraged to seek a proper assessment and advice based on the results of that. A psychotherapist shrink could help him free himself from his bad habit of feeling the need to get his parents approval. Do encourage him to sek the expert help he deserves, rather than giving so much power to other unworthy people whose selfishness seems to hurt him,
