I am very new to all this, and I am seeking advice. I have recently started a relationship with a wonderful women. We share so much in common, and get along wonderfully. We started dating about two months ago and she told be very early in the relationship she had been diagnosed manic about 4 years ago. She said the episode was so bad she had to hospitalized. I have had my own bouts with mental health problems, anxiety, and was not at all put off buy her problems. She has been off her meds completely since July, and has been trying naturalistic remedies. But I have seen a slip over the past 3 weeks. She had some personal issues, and is also very dissatisfied with her job. I have read lot lately on depression and how it affects those around them. I am willing to go to support groups with her, but as of right now I am feeling very frustrated. I know she cares about me and she is really trying to make this work between us, her communication is great,but she been cold, and drawing back into her self. I guess I really need suggestions on how to proceed. Should I bee supportive, should I give her space, I am not a huge fan of treating mental illness with Rxs, but should I suggest she go back on them, should I push us going to support groups together (she already goes to a group alone). Any advice, suggestion or support I can get would be appreciated.
