Just an informal poll. If there were a medication you could take that would allow you to work, but not cure you, would you take it? I'm asking because a friend of mine is bipolar and she gets disability. Imho, if she'd take her meds she wouldn't need to be on disability. (Granted, I don't know much about manic-depressives except that many don't like the meds because they make it hard for them to think. Please don't scorch me with my ignorance, but if you want to educate me please do.) I see her getting disability when she doesn't need it *if she takes her meds*, and she goes off her meds whenever she darn well pleases. Maybe in situations like that a supervised medication program or something might be the answer. I don't really mind that she gets disability. I mind that so many of us who also need it are denied and denied and denied. Anyway, just curious what you all think.
