    Hi Mikee,
    I'm sorry you're feeling so badly, can you talk more about what's going on?

    Hi, @mikee. I'm sorry you've been feeling so bad, especially since it seems like you've been feeling bad for awhile now. It can definitely be hard when you can't seem to shake those bad feelings. Still I think it's really great that you're reaching out. Sometimes it can help to know that that there are other people out there going through the same sort of things that you are. As for your depression, have you seen a doctor? Maybe a doctor could help you manage your depression so you could attend work regularly. Just an idea. I hope things turn up for you soon.

    Speaking from my own experiences of work absenteeism due to depression. I know the feeling is rotten, mind-numbing, gut-wrenching and dark. There is help but from where you are emotionally it is hard to find. Reaching out to this forum is a good start.

    I know the fears and anxieties associated with opening up to family and friends. Your true friends will be supportive and help you cope during this time. The hardest part will be opening up. I opened up to one friend and explained how I was feeling and that I wanted to die. He was shaken by my admission. He had no idea that I was feeling so bad. During our conversations, he told me about his struggles and I opened up about how I was feeling and that openness has strengthened our friendship.

    I also opened up to my family and asked for support. The initial discussion with family was less than perfect (lots of denials about how I could feel so bad) but I finally got through to them that I needed their support and for the most part I got what I needed.

    The best thing I did was to find a therapist and a doctor to help me sort my feelings and develop coping skills that let me function today.

    I encourage you to seek counseling when you are ready.

    Does your employer have an Employee Assistance Program? My former employer did and I was able to find someone to help me in the short term using that system until I could develop a trusting relationship with a doctor and therapist. Many if not all EAP's staff the phone lines with counselors and are completely confidential.
