I've been told multiple times that I'm good at my job but my employers don't see how my productivity crashes when I'm depressed. That's one of the hardest parts of being bipolar is that everyone sees you being successful but they don't know the sadness and struggle you feel inside. How do you deal with these feelings?

      I get that. When my hypomanic I'm great, and social. But when I'm not, I'm just going through the motions trying to keep going. I haven't told anyone I work with. Too scared. They will understand though. But I don't want them to always wonder if I'm in an episode

      I’m terrified of getting a job because of this exact reason. 😕 People aren’t understanding when it comes to bipolar and it’s not right…
