... change the way they feel? Like for eg. If your dating someone and they like you one minute can they change feelings like that?
I'm not on what you're asking. Sounds like your question has more to do with "someone" than it does with you? People are fickle and can change the way they feel regardless. I really don't want to guess on this question because it's a sensitive area and sounds very important to you.
Can you be little more clear on what you're asking please???
As balbanese just stated, not really sure just what you are asking, but I'll take a chance and try to answer.
People are people, therefore one person can change their mind about anything at any time. If you are asking if a person diagnosed with mental illness and medicated for their illness is different because of the meds they are on, the answer is yes and no. If their disease is controlled adequately with meds so that they are thinking clearly, I would say yes, they can change their mind. If they are not treated adequately and don't know what the are doing, are not being rational, they can change their mind too. People change their minds all the time and then change them again, especially when you are relatively young. I say that because schizophrenia usually strikes in the late teen and early 20's. Bipolar can become apparent at an earlier age.
Now I'm confused.
The human condition cannot be understood at all times. For yourself, I would say just roll with the situation and see what happens.
Whew... wishing you the best. Mental illness is difficult to understand in the best circumstances. I know this because I myself am mentally ill and I'm not easy to deal with on an intimate level at times... I am fortunate to have found someone who will hang in there with me and try to understand something in which he has no experience dealing with... I am happy about that.
If I came nowhere close to answering, I'm sorry, but I tried.
Have a good night.
LOL, I think I should be the LAST person to give advice on relationships, but here goes...
Dating/being married to someone with a mental illness can be a REAL challenge to say the least, but it doesn't mean that the relationship is impossible or will have more problems than any others. The illness CAN complicate things to be honest, but if the person's medications are working and he/she stays on their prescribed regimen, then the illness should be under control. Now, whatever it is that your experiencing may or may not have anything to do with the illness; you'll have to discover THAT for yourself. I would say that you are at a point where yo and your object of affection need to have a "come to Jesus meeting" so that both of you can get on the same page about where the relationship is going. THAT being said, YOU need to be honest and forth coming about your fears and concerns and ask the other party to be honest and up-front about themselves and their true feelings. Just remember that the person you are asking about has a medical problem and you are going to have to be committed to dealing with that just as much as the other person has to. Is it easy to do? No, but is it worth it? Yes, most definitely. I hope this answers your question. If you have any questions regarding meds or illnesses, please feel free to post back. Good luck!
