We haven’t been dating extremely long, but her family, friends, and therapist have all said it was a lot worse before I came to the picture. I gave her structure apparently, and everyone seems to imprint some kind of savior image onto me. Also her current meds are supposedly the most effective so far, and I monitor and pill organizer. I know I don’t owe her or any of her associates anything, but being told that I helped her into a healthier life style kind of I guess makes me feel like I contribute to giving someone a much more positive life whom I truly care for. I guess figuiring out how to balance that with my own wellbeing is the real trick. idk honestly
This is a huge red flag, even more so if it's only 6 months in the relationship. It's only a matter of when you will crumble, not if. By your replies you seem dead set to proceed with the relationship, so I wish you luck. But having had a few loved ones with mental illness, let me tell you that you have barely scratched the surface of how bad it can get. And it is extremely unfair of her relatives/therapists to place such a burden/responsibility on your shoulders.
