I'm bipolar and I think I understand the situation. When I was recovering from mania, I was simply willing to let everything go, you feel like you loose everything so out of anger ( and not thinking straight), you're willing to loose your job on purpose, drop out of school and create tension in your relationships. Truth is, he needs his medication and support from friends and family, primarily that he takes his meds, second, that he starts thinking of ways to take back his life, like a job or school. And you should support him if you love him, to get his life back on track, he'll come to his right senses of appreciating whats around him. He may be having symptoms of megalomania which is feeling very important to think the situation is always solved by him. So insist in him taking his meds, and be compassionate and the RIGHT TYPE of supportive.
