While I know that Bipolar Disorder is a common thread among the relationship stories and questions posted here, there often seem to be other complicating factors. This is one worth mentioning and, especially today, can very easily affect BOTH genders: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/yashar-hedayat/a-message-to- women-from-a_1_b_958859.html

Glad some people found it helpful. I really liked the fair and well-considered presentation--especially the way the author pointed out that most gaslighting is not premeditated/intended, and why that actually makes it worse. . . .

I'm going to share this article with my wife. I know her boss's husband makes comments about her weight. Also, I've seen men make "jokes" about their wife. I've seen the look of 'how could you say that' in their eyes but they just laugh it off. I hope that when they're alone she gives him a piece of her mind!

Man, that made a LOT of sense to me.

And damm if I don't see "ME" in some of it. I've overcome many, but still have some - it's a learned experience.

THANK YOU!
