After my diagnosis, my life seemed to fall apart. I lost my marriage, my job and most of my friends. People are afraid of me when they hear that I am BP. I loved my job. My supervisors gave me great reviews, and seemed very happy with my work. Then one day, we were sitting in my office and they were rediculing someone they knew with BP who had committed suicide. I was an idiot and came to his defense. I said that I had BP and that I was able to control it. Needless to say, I was "let go" for "cause." I have been unable to practice in the field that I love, and I am terrified to try again. There are so many times that I wish that I had kept it a secret. Is that the best way to go? I know that employers can't discriminate regarding disabilities, but they find a way around it. My former friends treat me like I grew two heads, and even some of my family relationships have suffered. Is there life after a BP diagnosis. Help.
