  1. Would you rather shove a cactus up your ass or eat some cake?
  2. Antinatalism is a philosophical position and social movement that assigns a negative value to birth. Antinatalists argue that people should abstain from procreation because it is morally bad. Thoughts?
  3. How many doctors with Bipolar I do you know? It is all dependent on the OP's specific situation.
  4. Implying that patients with bipolar in all cases have more insight into their disorder/limitations that impartial third parties is ridiculous. In reality for OP, family medicine vs ophthalmology is not a decision that can be made on a forum. It entirely depends on the characteristics of their diagnosis and life situation. OP needs to discuss this with their medical school, psychiatrist, and licensing authority.
  5. Apologies for the misunderstanding. I certainly agree that if managed well and not interfering with care provided a diagnosis of bipolar would be a non-issue. However, I would not personally feel comfortable or secure in providing adequate level of care if I had that diagnosis. How you decide if the condition is properly managed is the question of the day. Empathy is well and good but there is no point mincing words. Bipolar is a life-changing diagnosis. I do not want to discourage OP but there is a need to be realistic.
  6. Just because it is insensitive does not mean it is wrong. Foremost is the safety of our patients. And if I had a diagnosis that limited my ability to provide adequate care, I would leave medicine too.
  7. i probably would not use that letter if you have other options given how competitive EM is.
  8. I would certainly leave medicine. How does such a diagnosis affect your ability to provide care?
