I became really close to one outside mentor, who is 30,and we became...

He also doesn’t live near me. My adult son, who has a history of severe ADHD & rapid cycling bi-polar disorder, but who has never been psychotic until the past year (from meth use), is now at the point where his delusions are constant.

Immediate Attachment

My problem is that when I find a girl with any of the same interests as myself and start talking to them I immediately get attached and feel almost in love with the person both emotionally and sexually. This has happened many many times and can be kick started from one simple conversation. It is very troubling meeting someone once or twice and having the feeling of deep personal heartbreak when I cannot engage...
