I am very aware this serious, I have been her friend for years, I care enough to ask her what medicine she is taking and what for and what doctors does she see. She is comfortable with me because she is aware she must take care herself. She knows that I am her only friend who understands her and she is free to speak to me. I am not ignorant about bipolar, I recoginze when she has a problem, and she trusts me to recommend her to talk to phyciatrist and therapist. She listens and calls her doctor, if I recognize she needs it. Believe me, she has never threatened me. She is really a gentle person, who has bipolar. We have been friends for years and there has never been a problem with us. She has only been hospitalized once. She takes her meds regularly. She sees her dr's regularly also. I am glad I can be her friend. I know she loves (appreciates) my friendship. No one should have to suffer alone......I will always be there.View Thread
