At what point do you take time off work (either short or long term) for mental health reasons?
I'm really reaching a point where getting through a days work is taking more than I feel I have and the stress of going in and knowing I have to go in tomorrow is overwhelming me to the point I can barely function outside of work and basically shut myself in my room and lie in bed crying all night. I've been bordering on panic attacks and crying several times at work but I just keep pushing through. I don't want anyone at work to know how bad things are but I'm also worried about getting caught lying when I say why I've been off.
And actually passed?
