In the middle of April, I noticed my anxiety getting worse along with my depression. I would be driving to work, and think how I could take off my seat belt and speed into a tree. My anxiety is out of control- to the point where I can’t leave the house. If I do I have a panic attack. I am in so much emotional and physical pain (fibromyalgia ), that I just want it to end.
So I can’t leave my house, I can’t get out of bed and personal hygiene is not a priority. I can pull myself together to fake it in front of my 14 year old. He is the only reason I am still here.
So my psychologist filled out FMLA paper. My disability Dept approve it. I was out of work for 6weeks. I tried to go back and only made it 2 half days. My therapist says I can only do part time right. I am in no condition for full time. Of course that requires more paperwork. I submitted that on Thursday.
I get an email from my company disability Dept telling me I am not using my FMLA correctly and there is going to be an investigation. I’m not getting paid for the time off and my doctors are aware how long I have been out.
I was starting to get better and this just turned my world upside down and I can’t stop worrying about. Can I be fired because of this? The disability Dept has been approving the days I take off. Does anyone have experience with this?
Sorry for how long this. Any help is greatly appreciated. My mind is racing with the worse scenarios.
