How can I decide on education or medication of bipolar disorder?

I was recently diagnosed, and I'm in the middle of finishing my course related to science and I'm actually contemplating if shifting to another course would be better for me...finishing the said course makes me feel uneasy because of a gut feeling pulling me back?

My family knowing my condition became more overprotective of me, and keeps pressuring me. I really don't know what to do with my mental health as it is, finishing my course would be hard considering the medication I am taking which keeps me sedated and the pressure of needing to rest my brain at the same time needing to exert more effort on finishing my thesis, keeps me from doing any or both.

Please help thanks.

I would love to talk with you about this more!

Can I ask you what your doctor's advice/professional opinion about your situation/condition is?

And...what do YOU think is best (vs. what your family has said). What are the pros/cons?
