Hi all, I am looking to see if anyone has had a similar to mine. I am trying to get back to work after being out of work for eighteen months. I am a computer professional. In January 2008 I was part of a layoff. The layoff triggered a manic period which caused me to be "on". In less than a month I found a new job. After starting the new job the mania continued. I finally started treat my mania but in the process of treating it my job performance on the new job lead to me being fired after three months of work. I've been unemployed since. I have also been in the hospital an out patient twice. I've been on and off several medications. I was on disability for a year but my disability ran out last June. I've been able with the help of friends to pay my basic bills and insurance. Last week I was turned down for a new position because I had been out of work for so long. The company also feared that I would be over stressed by the ramp up to learning their technology. The turn down happen after more than a month of negotiation. I feel really knocked down by the experience. Health wise I feel great but my life has never felt so broken. Has anyone had the experience of going back to work after being out of work for so long.
