Bipolar Girlfriend 55 Years Old

I lived with my bipolar girlfriend for 10 months. She told me I was the best man she ever had and would never leave me. She had many rages, though, at supermarkets, in the car, etc.

One day, out of a clear blue sky, she said that I have to leave and have three months to get out. I told her that, "if you feel that way I am leaving now," and I did. Since that time she has stopped answering my phone calls and emails, went to a counselor. The counselor told me that she was in a mixed phase.

Is there any chance she will be back and how long will it take?
