Should I tell my boss?




I work in an office under constant pressure. I have to admit that sometimes I need to tell my boss that I am taking Venex 150mg and seroquel, and that I have been diagnosed with depression for years, and that I am not always able to perform in work and that I feel bad.

I need I have to tell him, but it will affect my future in the company

Not sure what to do

Well, it comes down to whether or not you can continue with things as they are... If depression etc is effecting your work anyway, then I think speaking to you're boss would be a good thing as it may help them understand. The main thing to bare in mind is that you have to look after
yourself- getting stressed with work will only make things worse for you. Legally, you're boss can't hold an illness against you- and hopefully will be understanding enough to make some changes. Hope it goes well if you do tell him/her. Remember you have nothing to feel bad about- you can't help being unwell. Atb x
