Welcome to the TAM forum, Susan. The behaviors you are describing are some of the traits of BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder), not bipolar. Everyone occasionally exhibits those traits, albeit at a low level if they are healthy. The traits become a problem only when they are so strong as to undermine a marriage or friendships. Only a professional can determine whether the traits are so severe as to meet 100% of the diagnostic criteria for having full-blown BPD.
Yet, even when the traits are well short of that level, they can make your life miserable. If you would like to read a description of what it is like to live with a BPDer, I suggest you read my posts in MaybeItsMe's thread at My list of hell!
. Take care, Susan.
