I read a story in the book I am reading about a former judge who was diagnosed with bipolar. The judge was worried about being looked apon badly because of having bipolar and being discriminated against. At first I agreed with me, thinking that it was not right to be looked apon negatively for having bipolar. However, the more I thought about it the more I started to think that maybe it's not safe to have someone with bipolar operating a plane, performing surgeries or any other jobs out there that people rely on for their own safety. I know that when I am ill my hand-eye co-ordination is off, I think more slowly and my perception is distorted. If it's a job where if your ill you can leave for the day then I can support that, but if the job depends on stability with no real backup to you when your ill then I think people with bipolar should maybe be avoided. This affects me as well since that means my career oppurtunities will be lessened but this may just be another reality of this illness that needs to be acepted unfortunately. What do you think?
