How can I support a bipolar friend who may be decompensating?
This is new territory for me; I am becoming close friends with someone who is bipolar. He has suffered some setbacks and may be starting to decompensate. I don’t want to invade boundaries or try to infantalize him and I’m not sure how close I can come, but any coping suggestions would be a help (particularly from the nice bipolar people here.)
