Do any of you have or know of people with bipolar disorder that have been able to have a successful/fulfilling career? I’m currently about to enter my last year of college and wondering is it even worth it or will my job options be limited in the future.

      I’m so grateful for the post and these comments because I’m also on my last year of college and the idea of starting my career next year is terrifying considering I just got diagnosed

      I was a nurse for 13 years. Stay on your meds and go to therapy to help deal with issues.

      I think it really depends on how much it effects you. I'm on good medications and I can work fine. Just have to be aware of myself.
