This is not an easy one to comment on,as you sound totaly supportive towards her.
Maybe things have moved along quickly buthey we are here for just a short time!!!
Her sleep pattern may not seem normal to you?but it could be right for her!!you said she has said :she is crazy: so obviously she is aware that she has some problems,but to what depth these are only she knows.
Possibly she may feel that she cannot confide in you yet?still early days but credit it to you,you are still there,and by you telling her that you also had suffered it may help at some time.
I work in Mental health,and can assure you that there are many differances in differant illnesses and who are we to say what this lady is suffering from,possibly only herself and her GP know,all i know is that continueto offer her your support and love,but also do not crowd her?as she could become frightened with how quickly things are progressing!!!!
All i will say is keep supporting her,and be there for her,and when the time is right she will tell you but also make sure you protect that heart of yours also.
Luv and cwtchs

You said it moved quickly at her prompting?
and that she became very intense?also you don''t mind because of the lack of affection in your life!!!!:
Maybe i''m the grim reaper but even though you have deep feelings for this lady,are you also lonely and just looking for love?
To say you don''t mind implicates this!!!!
Yes you are entitled to love and be loved but for all the right reasons,maybe this lady is the right one for you?but you need to love yourself first before you can move on:)
Hopefully,this is not the case,and i really do wish you all the best,but you come first in this your new life,and yes your heart needs protecting also,it been broken once,try not to let it happen again
Luv and cwtchs

I would be wary of using a mental illness label. Even experienced professionals using diagnostic tools often get it wrong or what initially appears to be one condition evolves into something else. If you are close to someone it''s even harder to be objective.
People are different. After 20 years of marriage and 13 years of marriage I''m in no rush to get into another relationship. Until now my mental health has been good but I don''t think it would survive another relationship breakdown. I''m actually happy on my own. Also I keep weird and irregular hours but that is a habit that comes from juggling work and children.
I can understand where your girlfriend is coming from. One of the major factors in the poor outcomes of children from separated parents is multiple chances to the structure of the family so it is quite sensible not to be in a rush to get into new relationships when there are children to consider.
Take things very slowly. All you can do is reassure your girlfriend you will be there and let her confide in you when/if she is ready.
