Surveying how many individuals who are Bipolar work and hold professional jobs?

I am trying to start a business. I tried to leave some information about my business at the office where I see my psychiatrist. He told me not to leave any information because it is a office of "sick" people. I know for a fact there are many individuals who are Bipolar who hold down professional jobs. Can anyone respond to this?

I began treatment for bipolar disorder mid-2003 and a year later I got a part time job where I worked 30-38 hours a week for two years and I've been working full time at my current job for over a year now. As long as I stay on my meds and change things accordingly when I start to go downhill I'm fully functional. And... More
