    I confessed to her that I have bipolar and Asperger's, which I myself was always familiar with, but never suspected it until the diagnosis. Now whenever I get a little upset, bored or seem absent she immediately thinks I'm going through hypomania. Whenever we're supposed to order a meal or call someone she says she'll do it. She gives me that darned look sometimes like I'm a sick street puppy in the winter.I just want her to treat me normal, and whenever I try approaching her with this, she says she will change, and the next thing tomorrow she does the same things. What should I tell her?

    Just be honest and tell her how this is making you feel.
