    I am currently suffering for Bipolar Type 1. I am fairly stable and very lucky I have a job that tolerates me. My grandfather passed away recently and I haven’t been taking it well; so I ended up spending 2 nights at my boyfriends. I live in a private basement suite and there are a few woman who share the upstairs. The landlord repeatedly entered my suite without notice or consent over the period of a year. Landlord recently advised a tenant living upstairs to break into my suite to check on my cat who was crying. I had contacted the landlord prior to her entering and said that I would check it out, which I did and there was nothing wrong with my cat. My cat was just upset because I had been spending a few nights away from home which I rarely do. I was not informed of any one entering my suite illegally and I had no idea. Upon arriving home I had found my door completely taken off its hinges and no one even bolted it back on. I confronted the lady and she got mad at me and was very defensive. I was calm, all I wanted was my privacy and an apology and to not have it happen again. She got very aggressive and loud and I lost it, I feel violated and I feel like I did something wrong when I know I did not. We argued and she verbally beat me into the ground. Now I am getting evicted because the landlord is taking her side. Things were just going so well. Im in the right and filed a complaint but that does nothing for how im feeling now. Im scared, stressed and extremely paranoid from the whole situation.

    No way, that is terrible. I can just imagine how upset and betrayed you must feel. I really don’t think you should be holding out to stay in such a bad place, have you started to look round? Can you stay with your boyfriend as a temporary arrangement? Im sure he is fully aware of the situation and how it makes you feel.

    Are you on medication for your Bipolar? I think under any circumstances anyone would have lost it. I know I would have, how dare they break in! I think you should have made it a police matter.

    Please keep taking your medication if you have some and if you don’t see a doctor and explain what is happening in your life!

    You need some sort of stability. What about family? Do you have anyone other than your boyfriend that can support you?
