When I’m hypomanic, I am so so mean to my boyfriend over nothing. He tries to warn me before he talks that he isn’t trying to start a fight, he reminds me he is on my side, he asks how he can help....but none of that seems to help me de-escalate. My irrational anger happens so fast it is like a reflex. I seem to be incapable of processing before becoming outraged. He is to the point that he just avoids me for a week because he doesn’t want to fight. Of course this makes me feel alone and abandoned and hurt. Sometimes it makes me plummet into depression. I don’t know how to fix this. I think he is at a loss as well. I just know we can’t keep going like this without eventually ruining the relationship. I’m desperate for advice....has anyone else had this issue? How did you solve it? How did you learn to cope?
