Mental patients dating
I don’t like to hide things and I like everything to be out in the open. It can be scary and intimidating to a lot of people. You do need to know the person first but hiding your illness can make things worse in the long run.

It is a part of me, but there is a whole lot more to me as a person. I am an advocate; in fact, my dating profiles mention I am an advocate. Of course, I don’t get a lot of answers back after mentioning it, especially when I explain that I have bipolar disorder, an anxiety disorder, and depression. ” Besides, do you want to be left at the bar or table when they “go to the bathroom” after learning about it?

Only 15 percent of participants were currently involved in a romantic relationship.For example, one stated that she had started dating someone, and it was going well.Then he found her medications, and she never heard from him again. This was especially so for those with more severe mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, who tended to receive low-income or welfare.
