"Throughout my adulthood, the irrationality and impulsiveness of mania has severely limited my ability to stay employed. I often describe mania as a similar feeling to chugging 20 energy drinks and weathering the side effects for days, weeks or even months. You can imagine how this would affect a person"s ability to work.
Due to mania, I"ve jumped from job to job human services to advertising, back to human services, then pursued my Master"s in Special Education that led to teaching, then lastly back to human services never actually building a career.
My emotions and symptoms often cloud my thinking and behavior, ruining my relationships at work. However, identifying my diagnosis and learning coping skills has been key to learning how to keep a job."
