I'm a lecturer at a pre-92 Univeristy and have a bipolar diagnosis. I wondered if there are any other academics on here in a similar situation?

I'm just coming out the other side of my worst epsiode that included 6 weeks as an inpatient. I'm starting to fear that the impact of my illness is going to result in me losing my career. It has such a tremendous impact on my research. I'm afraid to commit to collaborations and conferences because I'm worried about being ill and letting people down.
