I’m a 38 y/o single white male with schizoaffective disorder. I’ve been stable on my meds for many years and have dated a lot but have not been able to find someone understanding of my diagnosis and being on disability. I would love to find a woman who really understands and is interested in a relationship. I live in southeast North Carolina. Any replies would be appreciated, thanks.
I’m a single white male, 55. It does seem that people with mental illness share a strong bond. Anyone who isn’t mentally ill couldn’t understand it.
There sure seems to be a lot of people out there who pass for “normal” but are yet unDx’d. You can’t dismiss everyone without that MI label.

Having a relationship with a woman who has a mental illness is a hard road to travel. It’s good to have someone who you can relate to but when you see them suffer it’s terrible. The feeling of helplessness you get watching them struggle with this illness is just horrible. I would do anything to make her better but ultimately each illness plays itself out on its own course.
I don’t know what will happen when we’re both struggling at the same time. I don’t even want to think about it.
Question is why? Emotional baggage can get thrown around in many forms when things get serious. Not to say they are all like that but my experience toxic isn’t the word.
