Does it balance the scale??
How do you get someone with (although self-diagnosed, you cant miss it) bipolar disorder(s), depression, anxiety, and possibly a load of other phsycological problems, to actually go for outsidehelp? What do you do if they admit having a problem, but honsetly believe they can solve it on their own. How do you live with someone that you know have a history of multiple problems, issues, baggage, hang-up, alcholic traits, but you still love them with all you heart? How do you live with a continues roller-coaster life and keep your own sanity? How do u get to a point that although u're strong and positive, and u realize u'll possibly be okay on your own, u still decide to do what u can becoz u love unconditionally and you'd rather stay and try to help (some days u actually believe u make a difference) Between the high and low of moods the days are the same, when he's good.....he's the best... (one side of the scale) when he's bad....you cant believe its happened again (the other side of the scale) You're intellegent enough to know that this rollercoaste-life you're living is your own choice and fully knowing him and his moods, u can almost predict when a vulcano is bound to erupt? You know it al... the bad and ugly.....but knowing the good and beautifull.... does it balance the scale??

I'd ask them for the evidence which leads them to believe that they can solve all this on their own, as they seem to have signally failed to do so, this far --- and do they plan to fix their own car, fridge, washing-machine, and do their own surgery, too ?
