About Me: Male, 39, clinton, NC, member since Feb 2013
Bipolar II, temporarily unemployed stockbroker, divorced father of two young boys, and utterly frightened, angry,consumed by, and fed up with my mental illness/disorder. No meds seem to help. This disorder has pretty much ruined my life...it caused my divorce, it has
[More] negatively impacted my relationships with family, friends, and even clients. Bipolar II disorder also has caused me to make ENORMOUS financial mistakes and decisions over the past year or two that without the ever present mania and depression (that i deal with every day) i never would have made It has also had a big impact on custody of my two boys(even though i never go a week without seeing them, even if its not my weekend) It also cost me my job in November, and despite my illness, I had been a six figure earning investment professional for my brokerage firm every year for 8 years. But in 2012 everything got sooooooo much worse, and i went from earning $170,000 in 2011 to only earning $38,000 in 2012!!!!! Now I am unemployed and in search of another firm that would be a good fit for me. Somebody please help me get a handle on this horrible horrible disorder that is Bi-polar. It is eating me alive.
