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

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
