Hello all, it has been a while.

I am dealing with a lot of stress and depression right now. I work two part time jobs at minimum wage to pay the bills, and I start grad school in a little over two weeks. My one job I like, the other i despise, and unfortunately work there for 6-7 hours tonight! Anyway, I don't think I can handle grad school where I have to keep a 3.0 GPA, and two crap jobs.

I feel like crap and am not sleeping well, and am depressed as a result. Is there any way I can take temporary leave from one of the jobs for depression? Will I get fired for even attempting to do so? I honestly feel like quitting but I'm not doing it until I get a better job or more hours at the other part time job.

Suggestions are GREATLY appreciated.

Hi there,

Welcome back to the forum. I hope that things get better for you. I would do as suggested and talk to your doc.

Hugs, Karen...

Thank you both.

I guess I'll just give it a bit more time and make an appointment if need be to get the paperwork needed.
