Ever since we got back together, he says he can't be without me

Does anyone else feel they are their loved ones source of stability?

My partner has done a 180 on me. He wants to be with me, he compliments me and is more affectionate.

Has anyone else experienced this when their loved ones are on meds?

Yes :smiley: Not just my son but my husband as well. I consider myself their pillar of strength. I’m not sure my son realizes that I am but my husband does. He used to call me his bodyguard. Now I’m his by-the-book Barbie as I keep things running smoothly.

My son is currently stable and it is a great feeling to be able to share affection with him.

I’m so happy for you that you and your partner are enjoying each other’s affection. :thumbsup:

I hope you don’t mind me popping in here, but I know I’m more affectionate when stable and on my meds.

I still feel the same emotions for my family when I’m not stable, but there is so much… Too much going on I can’t slow down and figure it out.

Think of how painful light can be when your eyes are dilated. Not picture that when ALL your sensory is dilated all at once. It’s too much.

I still cherish my kid sis when I’m ill but I’m too unstable to tell her or show her. Half of me would really rather die then have her see me like that. So I just want her to go away. The other half of me is baffled by my toe and I’m in a deep blown panic to boot. Sort of like a hurt dog will even snap at it’s beloved human when it’s scared and hurt.

When I come through the other side of having my mind cheese grated and my sis is still there by my side… Thankful doesn’t even begin to cover it.

Stability makes all the difference in the world.

Thank you for sharing Surprised J. It really gives an insight and Barbie it is beautiful to see this other side of our loved ones that we know is there all along.
