Worked with doctors Taking antidepressant meds and therapy. Seemed to be making real progress until last month, after particularly stressful time at work, became mentally and physically exhausted, felt like I a fell off a cliff and got in dangerous position. Called for help and took 3 weeks off. I returned last week to another very stressful situation, by end of week back in dangerous situation. Resigned my 20 year executive management position on Friday. Taking a leap of faith and planning a year off to concentrate on improving health. May have cheated myself out of sick time, but could not stop worrying about work when off. I feel relief already from decision. Now face telling my directors and staff so asking for prayer this week. I feel like leaving my second family but must make myself priority now. Anyone else deal with depression after treatments complete?
