I was wondering if anyone else with bipolar has this same issue or if I'm alone on this one. I have NEVER been able to stick to one job or even one hobby. My interests in things change from day to day. I might be interested in becoming a hairdresser one day, call all the schools, get all hyped up about it only to find in a few days I have no idea what I was thinking, no longer interested in that type of career at all. I have a list (I wrote one up one day) of all the careers, jobs, schooling etc. that I have gone through in my 41 years and there was like 100 different ones!! I've been everything from a bartender to a graphic designer to a photographer to a marketing assistant to a secretary...the list goes on. It makes my life so hard because I can never stick to one thing long enough to make anything out of it. I even started writing a novel once because I was convinced that I was going to write the next best seller!! Please tell me I'm not alone, that it's part of bipolar and not a major character flaw. Also, how do I stop this and actually focus on one thing!!! Will medication do this for me (it hasn't so far)? Thanks so much for your replies!!!!!! Mary
