Triolian:

He is very anti-medication also! I don't believe he even bothered to call his P.

I've never realized there is a recognizable difference in mania and anxiety.

Sometimes my anxiety is soo bad that I get 'excited' and reach out desperately in all directions. It felt as if he was 'reaching out desperately to me' and appeared to be like my anxiety. He went on and on about how he had nothing if he didn't have me.

Confession: I nearly forced him to take a Valium (He spent the night and I was tired!). Upon awakening he went on-and-on about the best night's sleep had in months!

Also, what is it distinguishes 'mania' from 'hyperactivity' re: hyperactivity treatment as a child w/ Ritalin?

And no, his docs 'don't' want to take the time to dig deeper. He says he feels deserted by them.

I'm afraid I'll have to tell him I can't see him anymore. I can't 'keep up' w/ his exacerbated neediness and an insufferable need to be recognized and complemented on every little thing 'he does' or 'he completes'.

I don't know if I love the man, but even if he were only a very familiar and good friend, my heart hurts to think of hurting him any further than this illness has hurt him. He literally cries at my feet.
