I believe my girlfriend is possibly bipolar but she doesn't think so so I need someone's advice.
I recently met this stunning single mom and she came across as someone who is to good to be true. She's absolutely gorgeous, caring and makes a lot of effort for me.
However I quickly realised not everything is what it seems. It turns out she has dated many men and they all either left her or cheated on her. She has been rather promiscuous and had a very very troubled childhood and been in abusive relationships where she has been assaulted. Behaviour wise she would say things like I am perfect, then later say I am not perfect but want to be. She would constantly contradict herself about everyday stuff, say something but deny saying it even though she said it minutes a go. She makes odd comments and does odd things like go to shops to buy food but come back with bottles of mineral water and nothing else.
I realise she has a difficult job in raising a small baby by herself but what makes me worried is that she is frequently extremely argumentative, always angry, judgmental, rude, irritable, has emotions which can chop and change in seconds, always stressed out and all her ex boyfriends and many of her very few friends, get slated by her. She hasn't spoken to her mom in years and her dad is a drunk so it is one sorry affair. She also had an abortion in her teens.
I am really at my wits end and all my friends are telling me to dump her as she is to much trouble. She admits she is very hard work and I have asked her to get some help and she agrees, but always wriggles out of it saying she is fine. I do have feelings for her and love her son, but constantly feel stressed and will have to leave her soon or I will go mad.
I would appreciate any advice on how to deal with her and whether anyone thinks she may be bipolar.
