I'm also self-employed and have had a single client for almost three years now. During that time I was "diagnosed" and began taking meds. I have only let on to a few close people at work about my situation, but I'm lucky to have a couple of really cool co-workers.
I've asked them to "keep an eye on me" at work, and give me feedback if I start to slip up. My main client contact has no idea of the situation and I want to keep it that way until keeping quiet no longer works to my benefit.
I also telecommute at least one day a week, usually to accomodate our family schedule (3 kids and wife with active lives), but sometimes if I'm having a hypomanic day or so, I can work from my basement.
