In Reply to: bi-polar posted by Mona on November 21, 2000 at 03:04:40:

I don't have bipolar disorder, but a good friend (and one of my former employees) of mine does, and she's able to collect a type of disability, SSI (state supplemental income) for her disorder because at her previous job she had a bad manic episode (she screamed to two co-workers that she was going to kill herself, and walked out). Her doctor wrote her a recommendation, and she stayed home and recovered for about a year. Depending on your state (this is California), you can probably get into a program like this. My doctor wanted me to apply because she thinks that my job is too stressful and that's why I'm getting worse, but I have too much saved to collect disability. It'd probably help out a lot that you were a state employee, and that your boss said that you needed intervention (even if he didn't mean it). There's a second type, abbreviated as SSA, but I don't know too much about it, even though that's the one I need to apply for. There's a web page also that can help you out, too. I don't know the address, but if you run social security disability through a search engine, it'll come up. I hope this helps a little.
Helene
