First day back at work after mania

I always am terrified "reentering" my job after a manic episode. It went pretty well. 3 of the MDs I work with had data for me. I had a new safety report to deal with and I prepared to deal with a new chemotherapy drug. Most people were welcoming and only a co-worker I am friendly with nudged me to ask if I was ok. I talked to my psychiatrist at lunch to let him know the transition was going well. He told me to keep with the klonopin until I see him tomorrow. I thanked him for not admitting me and being so patient. .He said, "I know you, as long as I'm comfortable you aren't in physical danger, I know we can work together out-patient". I feel heard and cared about. He has that effect on me.

I've been seeing mine for 18 years. I trust him completely and he trusts me. That's why our relationship works. He knows when I'm manic and delusional but not in danger vs. manic, psychotic and in danger. Even manic, he breaks through my fog. I hear him. He knows it too.
