“THE” conversation

Well. After a talk with my therapist, we decided that I needed to do a thing. Specifically, tell my boss that I’m sick.

Yes.  Tell my boss that I am mentally ill.

Now, its not like I sat myself down in her office and went “I have bipolar”.  It was more of a “I have depression and its been really bad lately.” Because, right now, that is what my problem really is. I was terrified to tell her, but I knew I needed to do it.  The depression was/is affecting my work.

I told her and started crying and the first thing she did was give me a hug and then we took a walk and she asked me how she could help.

I’m one of the lucky ones.

    That’s very brace of you and certainly compassionate of your boss.
