so I recently left my job of a few years due to my anxiety, ptsd and depression. my doctor took me out on a leave of absence for a while to see how my medication would work for me , I felt like I needed to be out for a little bit longer but she basically told me that she wasn't gonna keep me out any longer and that I had to go back to work, so I ended up quitting. even with the meds some things are still kinda hard for me, but my mom keeps kinda throwing it in my face that I'm no longer working. she complains to me about the things I haven't done when I'm home "all day, every day". not sure how to even handle this because I told her it bothers me before & nothings changed. it really just makes me feel useless ...

@Jenna88 when my doctor took me out on leave I was out for about 3 months or so as well but that was the second time that she took me out, I went back to work after the first time and was okay for a while but then the panic attacks became more frequent than they have ever been so she took me out again, I started med while I was out and when I went back for a follow up she basically told me that she wasn't gonna keep me out any longer and I had no choice but to go back to work ; even though I didn't feel ready so I quit. while I was out on the medical leave I was on tdi so it did help but you only get it for so long. I want to look into finding a new therapist since ive been through three and have had no luck, sometimes I feel like my doctor doesn't exactly get what I'm going thorugh so she doesn't get how bad things are for me sometimes so I don't know if her or a therapist would sign papers for disability. I really want to work but it just gets to be too much for me right now, but like I said it seems like no one really gets how bad it is for me.

@maryssa_w I'm so sorry you experienced the "spreading" too even though it helps to know I am not alone. For some reason I have been more depressed than usual these past two days, grieving my old self and old life; crying a lot almost continuously....
