What is your occupation? How do you balance work and bipolar? Have you told employer/ co-workers? Do you work full or part time? I am now returning to work following a 10 week loa. I am a cashier at walmart. I am planning to reduce my hours from 40 to 33. I need to keep a certain amount of hours to be eligible for insurance, but don't want to push myself and jeopardize my health. I want to try to have same shift every day since staying on a routine seems to be crucial to managing my symptoms. What are your experiences?

I've just gone on it and my mood has completely dived - depressed and anxious.It could be the weather - we've gone from summer to autumn here in the UK - temps dropped 20F or more.Just trying to work out what's caused the current blip.
I've experienced this several times in the recent past and I can remember experiencing it for as long as I can remember, off and on. It seems to have gotten more frequent and/or more disturbing. But does anyone else experience yelling or screaming when they're in the shower? Its accompanied by this urgent feeling, like fear, but also a numbness, like I know it isnt real so theres no need to react...
