I’ve been dating someone for 6 months who mentioned in the past that he thought he may have bi-polar, undiagnosed. I’m noticing some erratic behavior at times and I don’t feel comfortable prying or asking questions this early. I’m hoping to get some insight from others familiar with different mental health issues. He has a history of:
- rage/anger
- feeling self-righteous
- alienating family and friends
- failed relationships, either deserting or being pushed out
- substance abuse
- obsessing over conspiracy theories
- strong faith, then breaking away from faith
- sleep problems
- urinating in strange places (possibly sleepwalking?)
- falling in love quickly and attaching, then distancing
- exercising poor judgment
- depressive states
- excessive energy
- trouble connecting socially at times
- vanity
- claiming to have seen demons or that someone is possessed

Do any of these sound like bi-polar? I’ve not witnessed a bi-polar episode so I’m not sure what I’m looking for. Thank you for your help.
