Anyone else dealing with a bipolar person close to them?

I've posted about this situation before, and whilst I appreciate sympathy (God knows at times I pity myself enough) I wanted to see if there is anyone else in the same sort of position who can share any tips they have?

DS 21 refuses meds, and so is cycling. He loves the euphoria of being hyper, but it is exhausting to be around as he has no boundaries and frequently gets himself into tricky situations. When he is down, he struggles to even get out of bed - but it seems he is willing to pay the price of having those periods if he can be manic.

I don't know how much more of this I can cope with, my stress levels are in the danger zone.
