    I'm working part time. There's no way I could work full time, but I don't know that my bipolar 2 has anything to do with it. (It's moreso my sleep disorder and chronic pain.)

      On my hypomanic days, work is a breeze. On my depressed days is where I struggle to stay consistent with any 9-5.

        mm, I think it's hard to tell my depressed days from my hypersomnolence days, they're so entwined. Now that I think about it, I experience a lot of despair at work though. Hypomania messes with my work some but mostly via keeping me up all night on work nights.

    I'm currently a full time student pursuing a career in classical music performance. It's super demanding and ive recently been worried that it could turn out to be too much for me to handle.

    I'm a dispatcher for a transportation company, but I only work part time because I'm also on social security disability.
