You spend the earlier parts of your relationship trying to “read” the other person; trying to make sure you’re both on the same page.These are only a handful of the mixture of emotions and dispositions that may be found in just one condition, not to speak of an array. I can guarantee to you that your partner wishes things were different, that you didn’t have to see him or her like this.You need to assure your partner that “normal” isn’t what you want, that you want him or her to be happy and healthy.
“I can’t handle this,” you might think to yourself. The main thing to remember is that, in most cases, your partner’s illness does not define him or her.
