Yes, it is possible to be found disabled if you suffer from Bipolar Disorder.

Social Security Disability recognizes mental health problems as keeping you from working.

Some tips if you have Bipolar Disorder.

Keep a simple log. Use a calendar to record the bad days you have and the symptoms.

Tell your therapist and psychiatrist what affect your symptoms have on your daily activities. This will show up in your medical records and give you more credibility with the judge.

Use your spouse or close friend to testify at your Social Security Disability hearing. They should describe what they observe about your symptoms and how you are limited around the house. They should also testify about what they do to help you.
