My depression is causing me a lot of problems at work and I'm really worried about it. Most mornings I am anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half late, but I always stay over an extra hour or so to make up for it. However, this morning I was two full hours late and the CEO and president of the company were both looking for me. I work for a very small company so it is very noticeable when I'm not there. I spoke with the president and turns out they have been worried about me in the mornings. I explained that I have been struggling with depression and since I am in between insurances right now I can't go see my psychiatrist or psychologist. She seemed understanding (she has a P.h.D. in psychology) and offered to let me work a reduced or altered schedule until my insurance comes through (about 8 days). I prefer to continue with the schedule that I have been working which is about 9-6.
Typing this out I feel like I shouldn't be worried, but I my anxiety is getting the best of me. While we were talking I was crying my eyes out and an emotional wreck in general. Although she was very nice about it, I am worried that I am going to be seen as using my depression as an excuse and just wanting people to feel sorry for me. Furthermore, I'm afraid that my inability to concentrate is also going to eventually cause a problem. This could just be my anxiety, but I am really worried that in the end they will see me as a risk to the company and will let me go. I just keep thinking that although she was outwardly nice and understanding, she was really hating me and thinking I was just being dramatic and that I'm lazy.
Maybe this is more of an anxiety question, but how can I calm myself down?
