Hi,I'm brand new to this list. After having a wonderful hypomanic phase (I have BDII) four or five weeks ago, I've gone back into a bad depression. One of the worst parts is that I have no motivation or focus in a job that I adore when I'm doing well. As a writer and editor, the work I do is creative -- so, if I'm not "on" nothing much gets done and it only worsens the depression. Coming off a period when I was super productive and creative, this is a horrible let-down. I've missed so much work lately -- hiding at home in bed. I'm here at work getting nothing done -- just can't concentrate. I feel like such a bad employee. And I feel like I'll never be creative again. I'm thinking of leaving early and going back to bed. Help! And thanks for listening.
