Hi, I was diagnosed about 10 years ago with bipolar disorder with psychotic features.  I stopped taking my meds after a few years and the symptoms have gradually returned.  I have an appointment next week with a psychiatrist because I've been having suicidal ideations.  The paranoia has been back for quite some time.  I think I am schizoaffective (as was my mother and my son).  I am scared to death that my career and life is going to be over if my job finds out about this.  I am a nurse and handle very lethal medications.  I hope I can keep it together until then.  Thanks for letting me unload this :)

Welcome to Crazyboards.


I think that many of our members share your fear in terms of employers finding out about the diagnosis.  It's very frustrating that getting treatment for an illness has to be a big secret, but you have to do what is necessary to not sabotage your career.


Let us know if we can help you with anything.
