Keenbean, the most wonderful person I ever worked with was bipolar. What it gives you is this amazing ability to get things done. So you can do this, in a limited time, because you have the cognitive ability to go for it.
What I'd advise is to lose the negativity. With bipolar, this is a huge burden you may carry on your back, and may give you a STOP (negative) message when you actually need a GO (carry on and do it) message. The GO is the true you. Believe it. So many of the AD/HD and bipolar people I see can't latch on to the affirmatives of the condition. They get side-tracked by the fearful 'what if'?s. Forget them. Your drive and determination and speed will see you through this.
People who know you and your work have no doubts about what you can do. You just have to respect that they know who you are, and that they believe in you. And, if push comes to shove, you believe in yourself, and your ability. Don't lose that belief.
Just want you to know that my PhD thesis, after 16 days' online presentation to the masses, is already in the month's top ten of all accessed research in my Uni, in all disciplines (and it's such a niche subject!). Don't want to advertise, so won't give the link in open forum.
But I am very happy. It was maybe worth the hassle and grind to discover that so many people from all over the world think it's very important!
I think,ultimately, that's what we're here for. We all want our voices to be heard, by our colleagues, our Universities, and the world.
All of us have done something exceptional. Sometimes, in the mess that is PhD research, we may forget that.
