Stigmabegone Posted March 28, 2012 Report Share Posted March 28, 2012 Hi, I am new to this forum. I have lived with and been medicated for Depression for over 20 years. I have my good times and my bad times, just like all of you do I'm sure. Currently I am having a bad time. I have been to see a psychiatrist - who increased my medications, and I visit a psychologist once a month. My psychologist is wonderful and has really helped me to see myself more clearly. I am following his instructions and working really hard at getting myself better.The question I have is about working. I have worked with the same company for 13 years but in January I reached the end of my rope. I just couldn't keep pushing myself anymore, something in me broke. I spoke to my doctors my family doctor put me on sick leave from work until April 2nd. April 2nd is almost here and I am not ready to go back to work. I told my doctor but he wants me to go back on April 2nd and try work for two weeks and then go back to see him. That is not going to work for me. I feel that I will completely break if I go back to work on Monday. I go see my psychologist tomorrow and I will talk to him about this. Is it possible though that I have reached a stage in my life with Depression that I will not be able to work outside the home anymore? That is how I feel.
