As of January 2013, Ask a Bipolar will no longer be answering questions regarding romantic relationships. However, please feel free to peruse our past posts where you will find much information about this subject.
Please note that all answers given by the Ask a Bipolar Authors are strictly opinions. We are NOT professionals, and we do NOT offer medical advice. We are just a few bipolarees living with the illness.
If you are thinking about harming yourself, or know someone who is, we advise you to get help immediately by doing one or all of the following:
- Call your doctor.
- Call 911 or go to a hospital emergency room to get immediate help or ask a friend or family member to help you do these things.
- Call the toll-free, 24-hour hotline of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255); TTY: 1-800-799-4TTY (4889) to talk to a trained counselor.
- Make sure you or the suicidal person are not left alone.
