I met this girl recently and we've talked a lot and she seems pretty down to earth and cool.

The thing is, she told me she's schizophrenic and bipolar. How concerned should I be about this? I would probably never have known unless she told me.

Then it's not that big a deal. Go for it

If you like her, don't let it hold you back. If you want to know what to do when something happens, just ask her, the symptoms are quite different for each individual.

That's hot. Seriously, it is.

Yeah it is. I'm only concerned that she doesn't start tripping balls while we're banging and I end up getting stabbed.

that's extremely unlikely to happen. neither bipolar nor schizophrenia is likely to make her suddenly go THAT much out of her mind.

I should add that she smokes a lot of weed and apparently weed can excacerbate the symptoms of schizophrenia so I'm not sure what to think of that. . .

...make sure there's no knives near the bed?
Don't they have medication for such things anyways?

Good luck taking care of her for the next 75 years because if you leave her she will certainly hunt you a-down and stap you in the nuts.

you should probably do some reading into schizophrenia, it covers a lot of illnesses

I would say you have quite a delimma on your hands then.
#14
Is she on medication and handling it as per her doctor's orders? If so, she should be fine. Schizophrenia is a weird one, but she's obviously not crazed and she's still a person with feelings. If you like her, go for it.

I'd be careful.
I don't know a whole lot abotu shcizophrenia, but I know that bi-polar people can get a bit...out of hand.

Not sure if it's a trait I'd enjoy in a partner!
Though then again I'm a pretty shallow and high maintenence person!

If you're feeling it, give it a shot!

I dated a bipolar girl once and it was awful. I never knew if she was going to be in a good mood or not. Personally, I wouldn't do it, but I am going to recommend that you do because everyone is different and can tolerate different stuff. If you haven't tried dating a bipolar schizophrenic girl, how do you know you wont like it?
What?! There's a clean channel on my amp?!

Okay, the whole getting stabbed thing was primarily a joke but, I just don't really know what to expect.

The singer in my old band had Schizophrenic. One of the nicest guys I've met. You'd never of know he had it. It doesn't always manifest it's self in a "oshit freak out" kinda way.

You do know that, that is not schizophrenia but Multiple Personality disorder what you are talking about? Schizophrenia is seeing things that aren't there and some related issues.

Schizophrenia is not dissociative identity disorder.

Does she really have those things, or does she just say she has those things? They are pretty common pieces of self-diagnosed pop-psychology terms that people use to describe themselves when they have neither.

Seems weird to me that someone you just recently met would open up to you about major mental illnesses.

My ex was bi polar. It was a ****ing disaster to be around her sometimes.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash
#31
What are her symptoms, TS? Do you know? There's a pretty wide umbrella of potential symptoms which may make a relationship harder or easier.

That is dissociative identity disorder. Schizophrenia is different.

Then you clearly know nothing of bi-polar..

My roommate is bi-polar and she's done some crazy shit she doesn't even remember it's like a psychotic episode.. I've been threatened with being stabbed, I've been slapped for doing absolutely nothing, screamed at..

Schizophrenia I know nothing about though so that could just make it worse.

Run, fast......women are crazy to begin with and you found one that is batshit crazy. She'll seem cool at first and will be an absolute blast in the sack, but you'll find yourself one night, at 3 am with a crying crazy chick wondering, what the F did I get myself into. The medications will make her a zombie, she'll self medicate with drugs and alcohol, but no matter what it wont contain all the crazy.
