Get medicated, stay on them and get regular blood tests. I've had depression and anxiety for over 12 years now. There are times I am so low in depression I just dont care if I have a job or not, but then I look at my wife and kids and head into work. The meds help. Having something to anchor you helps too.

I've worked for about the last 25 years. My best job was a Park Ranger for two years. I'm working as a janitor now. It pays good and the hours suit me. I've been their two years. But I know for a fact that MANY, MANY people with mental illness hold down jobs for significant periods of time. AND many people with mental illness graduate from college. And live independently , drive cars, have friends and husbands and wives and healthy normal children.Maybe a lot of people with mental illness don't accomplish EVERYTHING I listed but some do combinations of those things. Don't rule too much stuff out because you have mental illness.
