Returning and seeing this as my last post, I'd like to add an update. Over a year later, she is no longer my FP, but my best friend. I did eventually ask if she was bi or pan. She is not, but I still asked her out as friends. This is the only friendship I've been able to maintain for over a year since high school and I am perfectly comfortable telling her that I love her as a friend.
I'm definitely on an upswing now, maybe even hypomanic
Actually it was worse. I pretty much spent the weekend lying on the living room crying. At least we got new furniture yesterday, so that shouldn't happen again
