Your partner might also feel additional stress since dating someone with a mental illness has its own difficulties and requires more patience.
But you aren't destined to be alone or unworthy of love just because of the mental illness that you're fighting.

It's time for you to recalibrate, and it might even be time for you to release your partner if they oppose you doing what you need to do to survive.
