Has anyone ever gone on short term disability leave for their firm and then quit after? I’m highly depressed and I’m considering it to job hunt.

Yes I’ve done exactly that. Nothing wrong with doing it. Talk to your doctor first and get a diagnosis/make sure they’re willing to sign the papers saying you have a depression diagnosis, because the disability insurance company will shake you down pretty good but it’s all good if you have a diagnosis. Otherwise if you can afford it you can always give your “two weeks” notice before starting an unpaid personal LOA/using accrued PTO. DM me if you’d like.

Anyone else have hyperemesis gravidarum (currently or in the past)? I had it in my previously pregnancy and ended up booking 300 sick hours during that fiscal year. Now I have HG again in my second pregnancy and am going on a reduced schedule via short term disability because its even worse this time. I have never met anyone else in public accounting with HG, so just looking to connect/solidarity.

Do you wish you could get off of them? Context is that I'm an adult male that has made it so far without them. But I started to realize that I may have ADHD a couple of years ago.
