Hi I am new on here...I have suffered from depression on and off for many years. i seem to improve then I end up goin down again.
I feel so guilty about letting people down, work colleagues and family (who don't really understand) I have just taken in a sick note as the doctor has signed me off for 2 weeks, I wasn't goin to hand it in as where I work have a system if you are off more than 3 times in one year you have a 'return to work' then in my circumstance it would go forward to a disciplinary as i have been off through sickness and misgraines which are linked to my stress levels. I am scared when i go back I will get a written warning as they don't see depression as an illness its another absence!
This is just adding to my anxiety and depression
