I agree with #1 about the moving out. I had a friend that was bipolar and refused to get any treatment or take medication, he thought that is was "their way of controlling his mind." I tired to help as much as I could, but he tried to bring me down with him. Op, you cannot help someone if they do not want it.
That's so not true 47, I have a relatively minor case of bipolar II and when I took the wrong meds or tried to stop certain meds too abruptly, I tried to fight my family (like seriously fight them) because they tried to get me to stop "landscaping" after 48 straight hours of it (I was digging up the yard and pulling up slabs of cement.) My dad who has bipolar I does some really horrible things that he is ashamed of when he goes off of his meds, and something like this FML wouldn't be too out of place. Especially when he starts to hear voices or believe he is god. It's not that unheard of or rare for very serious things like this to happen.
I forgot to add that if that kind of stuff, or anything violent to them self or others, occurs, they need to see a psychiatrist or even be admitted somewhere involuntarily immediately. It's one thing to do weird stuff, but it's a whole different level of bad when one is dangerous.
There are very minor case of bipolar and then very major ones. I'm bipolar and although I've been on medication most of my life and am not a violent person, I can tell you that this is easily a real situation. When a bipolar person goes into a "manic" state, they can get so "high" that they believe they are invincible. It sounds like OP's roommate can also get extremely upset about little things. OP, I really do recommend you call the cops if your roommate tried to stab you. They need help and it's for the best.
that guy needs to relax a bit, but it is not nice to throw away someone's food. :/
I agree, with #3 you don't throw other people's things away without them knowing first. The OP isn't the one eating it. Besides some moldy cheeses (especially if it's a hard block of cheese) are still perfectly fine to eat if you cut the bad part around it off. That knife was probably to be used for that but since you threw it out? I don't know what part of the US the OP is from but if they're from Wisconsin? Those people are crazy (bipolar or not) about their cheese!
Your roommate is extremely irresponsible to not be taking his medication. Stay out of his way, and if you have a way to contact his parents or psychiatrist, do it. Or call the police if another incident occurs. He is obviously a danger to others and very likely to himself as well.
You put yourself in the hole situation living there. You can't pick your nose but you can pick your friends
