I right now am dealing with the same thing. Some weeks back I disclosed to my boss that I am dealing with mental health issues stemming from the workplace. He responded by cutting my hours in half. I went straight to Human Resources but there was no change. The ensuing loss of income has only increased my anxiety. I too am under doctor's care and he too has directed me to take time off work and enter a program. My employer has not taken this well. In fact, his actions have rather frightened me and cause more anxiety with his 'how-dare-you-put-me-in-this-position' reaction. Now I have been thrust into the shadow of depression which I have long battled to varying degrees. The thing is I once liked my job and want to keep my foot in the door. Instead of feeling support, I fear that I will never be able to return to the job I once loved.

Hi InducingPanic,

This is a tough one but I believe honesty is always best policy.  You need to put your health first - always.
 
What did you or are you going  to do?

Hello IP, I'm sorry you are struggling.  It is a good sign though that you have sought help both here and especially with your doctor.  In my experience, it is always a good move to let your boss and/or HR know what is going on... especially since you are wanting time off prescribed by your physician.  They want to know, they need to know and likely you will be surprised by how much they might want to support you.  Good luck!  Let us know how it goes...

I am struggling and have been diagnosed with clinical depression. My doc wants to take me out of work so I can go to a special program. Do I confess my struggles to HR so I don't drop a bomb on them when my doc takes me out of work? It is because of my job that I feel relentless anxiety.
