I am writing to address a few situations, but i'll narrow it down. I left my job about 4 months ago (happily). Relaxed for about a month, and then decided I wanted to study for business school. I started studying, a class, the whole nine yards. What Ive found in the last 2 months is I'm not looking for a job. I study and work out and do chores, but I dont search for a job. It's as if im scared to.
About 5 months ago I was diagnosed as bipolar. In the beginning the treatment seemed to work. For the last 2 months ive been sliding down hill. I have found that I am not interested in very much. I dont care to look for a job. I have this delusion that I will just get into business school and not have to work, when, in reality I cant go back to school with no way of paying for it.
So I am not sure what is going on with me. I feel scared. I feel as if I dont know what to look for, where to go, who talk to. Without any interests I dont know what industry to look at or what job descriptions may fit the bill. This situation is starting to make me manic depressive as I feel stuck.
In my last appointment with my psychiatrist I was a mess. All he could say by the end of the session was "we need to think outside the box."
