IT sounds to me like you are talking more about a personality disorder than Bi-Polar Disorder. Bi-Polar women can be perfectly normal and stable if they take their meds and take care of themselves. But the world is full of people (more women) who want drama for themselves and everyone else. They lie, manipulate, and constantly threaten to leave, kill themselves, etc. Sometimes they go so far as to cut themselves a little bit. They can't trust anyone. They love attention and will suck out all you can give until you are spent, then they will hate you forever, until you make them happy again. These are Borderline Personality Disorder, not Bi-Polar.
Borderline personality disorder is curable but statistically much lower chance of happening, I agree with your statements as events that do occur and have experienced it with an ex gfriend, however 2 keys points to remember, the classification of a disorder is simply that and diagnosis criteria is usually based on a minimum number of behaviours occurring at certain set regularities of intervals and is uniquely different in every single case and secondly this level of mental illness eases with age in a higher range of cases statiscally beyond the age of 40 y/o and yes you are correct in saying more often in woman. Just please understand this is not black and white. When you look at scitzophrenia and paranoid personality disorder which is much much worse then your talking a very low chance of recovery however not impossible and can still ease with time and correct treatment. I have a 60 year old aunty who has made an almost full recovery from full blown scitzophrenia which hospitalised her for 9 years believing the CIA were trying to assassinate her. She now lives on her own and has a part time job. Your facts are correct in certain context but your only of the assumption that things never get better and Stereotyping mental illness is simply incorrect. There a millions of different possibilities of behavioural occurances in each person as just like everyone else we are all uniquely different

In reality more than "curable" is "controlable" the word that you are looking for. BP or BPD are not "curable" since the disorder will be always present, but if the patient keeps with the therapy he or she will be aware of the problems and will be more cautious about his or her own behavior.

My son's wife is bi-polar. She refuses to accept this &, therefore, will NOT take any meds. If she should get pregnant, what are the chances of any children getting this disease?

Very high. I think it's a 40% or so. However in children there is more chance to at least "control" the BD better than adults.

Wait till u end up with one that refuses to hear she is bi-polar. So of course she won't take meds. She's obsessive compulsive. Yells at me and the kids. Is controlling. If she doesn't get her way she likes to throw and break things. She's ruined family relationships. She lies. But to look @ her she looks sweet & innocent.
You got it...been there, saw that. Except for the obsessive compulsive since I dropped out with just being "friends with benefits" since she was sweet and stuff I wanted a real relationship but sometimes what you want ain't what you need...thank God I learned my lesson before getting into deep.

Man...mine now is like a Kabbalah tutor or something, she resigned to her amazing job as a child psychologist to do "life coaching" when it's so clear she doesn't have a plan how to earn the same amount of money as she did before. And the excuse? She didn't want to get up early to work.. I received the first "life coaching from hell" when I witnessed the "episode", crazy "Exorcist" type of behavior I explained earlier. I got a book she lend me and I'm still figuring out how to return that to her. It just give me the creeps she is on her "days" .

Any advices: leave the damn thing and run?

I have one who I love dearly but can't take her out or be around her cause she snaps if she doesn't get her way. I'm pretty sure she knows she is as I've pointed it out many times when trying to make a point. But I believe she refuses to get help because it could hurt her custody situation. My friends tell me to run and that she's a spoiled brat. I agree but have intense and sometimes overwhelming feelings for her that keep bringing me back. It's all pretty confusing. I don't know how to make any head way. I realize being with her could be a life of punishment but I try to see the greater good in her. Any thoughts?

Buddy, I will give you the same advice they are giving me: LET GO!!!

Believe me, been there...done that. Mine didn't snap in public, except when I told her about her condition (yes, it was my mistake, but all signs point to that!) and she got angry and left a coffee shop.

If she doesn't want to listen...it's her fault.

Most likely I will drop it at her mother's house...she's somewhat crazy as well, but only with her family.

Okay, let one of these unhealable broken wings wake you up with ranting from the other room about nothing to do with you , decide YOU need to wake up to handle her drama and in a full run from down the hallway into your room jumping from the doorway 7 feet onto your chest and demolishing a K-Size waterbed like a split swimming pool all at once.
Gooooood morning Vietnam!!
Those are for the birds.
I am bipolar and I take full responsibility of my disorder and actions. I might not be able to control my moods, but I most certainly can control MY actions. Also, meds help tremendously along w therapy. Stigma's are unfair.:¬()

If you are on treatment...well...that's another thing...when you are not...that's when the horror begins.

Well, I must say, this roller coaster ride...just got to an end, I returned the damn book and that's it. Cuts like a knife...but it feels alright! I will pray for her, that's the least I can do. In the end it was a wild and somewhat strange, funny ride...

Some "doctors" say "stress" doesn't exist. Who knew?

For me this "stupid forum" was the only way to express my concerns. It's good to not feel like the only one above earth who doesn't understand this "illness".

I don't understand it because it does not exist. It's like big foot, or tarots cards.There is no proof of it. I'm just tired of the school shootings, children being drugged, pharmaceutical rip offs, suicides, etc.It comes right from psychiatry. If you have any real proof that bipolar is real, show it to me. An article or something, because I sure posted a lot of articles that say bipolar is not real.I have found more articles against it, than say that bipolar exists. I think it's safe to say by now bipolar is bull or atleast I can say it's bull just in case it doesn't exist. What if bipolar isn't real? What if it's not true? What if all these people who say bipolar is a lie are right? Are you going to die or something?
