Am I overreacting because I'm bipolar?

My housemate has been making me miserable for the past few months. He's being so unreasonable to me that I end up în a low mood most days, and sometimes just start crying. I know that I have a tendancy to overreact to some things because I'm bipolar, but I'm also a very logical girl. I may overreact sometimes, but I just don't think this is right. I'll post some of the things he's been doing, and you'll see what I mean:
- He had no money. I bought him £10 worth of food, because he asked me to. He then yelled at me, saying I was inconsiderate and he didn't want to pay me back £10 - even though he had asked me.
- He came and watched my uni singing assessment, and instead of saying well done afterwards he said "go home and do the washing up, right now."
- After I came back from work, he told me I owed him a cigarette. Which I didn't. He then said "well, I'm still out", to which i replied "why is that my problem?", and he said "you have to bail me out, or you're a bitch."

This is just a few of the things he's been doing.
I'm sorry to rant about this, but I need ur opinion. This is making me miserable, and I need to know if I'm overreacting or if he's being unreasonable. Or maybe even both.
Thanku x

He is an idiot

Stand up to him, he owes you £10 and is being unreasonable, mis treating you because he thinks he can get away with it as you are bipolar (Does he know you are bipolar?)

I hope you sort it out as not getting on with who you live with is a big problem :(

He's trying to manipulate you emotionally. Draw some boundaries before it gets too bad b/c that is seriously just selfish behavior on his part. He needs to know that he's not simply entitled to your things/time just for being himself.

Who died and made him king?
