I think it is very hard to work with Bipolar disorder. Some days I get through it OK, others I would really rather not have to go but I do. We would be living in the throes of poverty if I did not work and I have been there and do not want to go back. We are putting our daughter through college, and I would go to work crawling on my hands and knees to make sure she gets a good education. I really think I would feel better and more stable if I did not have to work but it is just not a reality for me right now. I really know how you feel, I have sat in my car and cried I wanted to stay home so bad. But I lived through it and Bill is right, it does help if you atleast somewhat like what you are doing and use it as an escape from home or personal life. I hope things work out for you, try and stay positive and look for other employment options that might suit you better.
