I have ptsd and bi-polar and i try not to make it an excuse but sometimes they get in the way of things. For example, having a job. If i can pull off an interview, i can get a job, but holding on to a job is a different story. People freak me out and most the jobs i have had are all customer service jobs. Whether its fast food or not. I've been fired from all of them. My boyfriend does't understand this and we often times fight about it. Also, he hates when i talk down about myself. I understand this but all i say is, "i FEEL worhless". I ask him who else i'm suppose to talk to about these things. He thinks we fight too much, all couples fight, so i feel like hes coming up with excuses to leave me. Also, i want to go to an herbalist school for 3 months in washington, he does't know if we wants to go wih me, and he does't want travel with me anymore. Which, i could be totally wrong about this. Have any of you had to deal with their mental disorder and such, how did you deal with them?
