Does anyone have any stories about co-workers having to be hospitalized for mental health reasons during busy season or other times?

I know of some, yes. Definitely not stories I’d share as not my place and everyone is fighting their own battles.

Never hospitalized but early in my career was terminated from Big 4 during what I now know as a depressive episode that caused my job performance to suffer greatly. I bounced between dark depression and periods of great optimism and productivity for years. I am now diagnosed bipolar and doing much better.

Thank you so much for sharing this. Mental health is a long journey. It’s great that you were able to find the right treatment!

Yes but not my story to tell. If you or someone is struggling please look beyond the stigma of mental health and seek help. Your mental health is worth a lot more than a tax return.

Yea sumner of 2020 I just couldn’t take it anymore. I was on my 8th month if having to crank out work. Between the pandemic, my studio apartment, and just being so over it. I flipped , but did eventually find solid ground :)

If you yourself are or know someone who is going through some form of mental breakdown or are experiencing symptoms of severe depression there are hotlines to call. The suicide prevention number 800-273-8255 is one. If it isn’t that dire of a situation yet, then perhaps looking up a therapist that accepts the insurance of the person in need. In the meantime, no career is worth one’s life. Sometimes all we need is to cry and let it out to a professional who’ll listen. Breathe, relax and think of this - today is someone’s tomorrow that never came and we are alive today to make this day whatsoever we choose. Choose happiness and health, go get help.

I attempted suicide more than a decade ago and was sent to a mental health care facility (not by choice) for 4 days. That place was a joke. Law required doctor to meet with all patients daily... doctor saw me in passing during dinner and said hi and that he would count that as one of the required consultation. I was also only required to stay for 2 days unless the doctor thought it was in my best interest to stay longer. How does the doctor make that decision with merely a 5 second interaction? They charged my insurance $2000 a day. I was not given access to very much, other than paper and pencil / journal. I was thinking of documenting everything and reporting the facility for fraud but I got too lazy to follow through.

Thank you for sharing your story. I’m sorry the hospital and doctors were not there for you when you needed it most. I’m glad you’re still here with us and I hope you eventually received the resources you needed!

It’s been a couple weeks since I turned in my resignation leaving tax and busy seasons forever. For 3 months my hair was falling out in clumps. There were tumbleweeds of hair all over my house.

When I have doubts I think about my hair and my health and think I made the right decision.

I feel like this might be helpful: I brought home a puppy back in November - he had many health issues that he’s largely overcome, including giardia, colitis, food pickiness, poor growth, allergies, etc. I’m sure there are a lot of struggling puppy owners out there - if you’re dealing with a puppy problem, post it here and I’ll try to help! I’ve dealt with everything short of parvo - dehydration, diarrhea/bloody stool, days without eating, etc. I want to be able to help if you’re struggling!
