My boyfrien of 11 years is once again very manic. He only takes his lithium as he deems fit. He did not like Lamictal. When manic, he tells me about all these beautiful women that want him but he is so faithful to me etc. He does not sleep for about two weeks which makes it worse and does not think straight. He becomes very paranoid. The whole thing lasts about a month. This time he is going to Spain (this Thursday) missing my one year sobriety date which sort of hurts me. I know this is not about me. What can I do to help him or should I just let him go as usual and let him bear any cunsequences?
