I feel like the world has turned its back on me. Well, mostly the world at my work place. Since being DX'ed for bipolar, everyone stays away from me. I had to take two weeks off for a nervous break down and now, the very people who claim to be my friend, wont even return my calls.
I won't have anything to do with them when I return, but I am heart broken and people think I am nuts. I don't act nuts, mind you, but I am open about being bipolar due to my moods. On days that I am down and angry, I put my headphones on and keep them on and I don't bother anyone and I don't want people to bother me. When I am in a good mood, I chat with everyone. I know bipolar is so misunderstood, but I also fear losing my job over this crap. My doctor has not released me to return to work and it has been almost two weeks. I am not working at a place that has to have just me there to survive, but we fall way behind when I am not there. Does anyone else suffer from the kind of treatment? How do you handle it.
