  • Well it depends on think. One can be submissive sexually for more than one reason - out of fear or desire. If you're the latter, desire then its' your sexual personality I think. If your submissive in bed out of fear that's being depressed no matter what - fear for life, fear for children's lives or finances even.

    No matter your illness you have a right and obligation to know your finances. If you're a overspender then look at daily all bills and balances in accounts that pay them and household bills. But don't pay them yourself.

    Saying outright what you think is more a personality trait from what I've seen than from any kind of depression illness. A lot of manic depressives are totally afraid to voice a thought much less a
    strong opinion. Unless the opinon is totally against most of society's ways from being depressed.

    Take care! People with illnesses have rights too, have someone advocate for you WITH YOU.

  • who would want to be submissive? I wouldn't think your bi polar has anything to do with that, that is who you are (which there is nothing wrong with that). I think it is possible to be in a relationship even if your bi polar. Just gotta find the right man

  • just pick your battles. I used to fight with SO just so I'd be heard but the louder I was the more he ignored me. I've learned to think before I speak and think harder before I turn it into something that can be considered a fight. Our goal is to spend quality time together. He thinks fighting is nonsense and won't tolerate it. He'll walk out. So if I really want to be heard or my opinion given I have to do it with humor or send him a message. Whether he deletes it or not is his perogative but at least I got it out of my system. I'm normally not submissive in life but with him I am but it's something we agreed upon early on. We don't live together so I'm an independent person on my own. With others I carry out the dominant role but with just seems right to play the submissive role. If he abuses his dominant role I walk away until it's worked out. There is a difference between being a dom and an a-hole.
