should I stay or should I go?

My girlfriend has serious bipolar disorder
. I love her, but living with her is very, very difficult. She breaks down all the time. I don't know if I should commit to a life with her, and deal with this into perpetuity, or if I should move on and try to find someone better adjusted, leaving love for peace and stability.

Has anyone dealt with this before? I know everyone has problems, but this is really like a second full-time job. Which I don't mind, so much, but is it always this way? Is it better to walk away, or deal with a possible progression of the disorder? I also know if I bail she will lose her mind again.
