My girlfriend was diagnosed with bipolar disorder 5 years ago but has recently been told that it was a mis-diagnosis and that she is a sociopath.
At first, with her being bipolar, I could handle it. The mood swings, the lack of empathy or guilt... "It'll go away."
And it always does.
But now that I find that she is a sociopath and that it can never change... I don't know what to do.
I will never leave her. I never could.
But it kills me.
I HATE being in those situations. I just can't wait to go to sleep until it's gone. But now all I think about is that it will never stop. It will happen tomorrow and the next day...
My girlfriend will always be a sociopath and I will always be her "willing victim" as they put it.
Talking to her doesn't help.
The whole "lack of empathy" thing... That "no guilt" thing...
She, sincerely, does not think that there is anything wrong.
She doesn't care about how miserable I am.
Sociopaths cannot love someone.
But I know she loves me.
But I also know that she would say that... To reel me in.
All she does is tell me to grow up. She tells me that I am being sensitive. That I am overly dramatic.
I don't expect anyone knows how it feels unless they have been in love with a sociopath.
I don't think "my ex was crazy" covers it.
I can handle crazy.
I can't handle mental terrorist.
