There are many individuals with Bipolar Disorder who
are able to continue functioning normally...living, working, and participating
There are some though, who because of the severity
of their disorder, or the frequency of their episodes who are unable to do so
and are disabled by the disorder.
Provisions have been made both in the United States
and Canada for those people who are unable to work.
Being disabled is not something to be ashamed of.
