I cannot work at the moment because of my depression. I sometimes feel like a failure because of this but then I have to remind myself that I have been at my job in a school for just over 14 years and this year is just a blip in my life. I have always worked since leaving college in 2001 so I guess I shouldn't be too hard on myself but it can be hard and then you get some people saying 'why aren't you working?'
My family and friends have been so supportive and so has my gp.
Can anyone else not work because of depression? My Mum and Sister said I could go on ESA until I get myself sorted. I'm in between finding the right antidepressant for me. I'm on Mirtazapine at the moment.
