Worked with my firm for a year. During the last few months, I have had family and medical issues that have impeded on my performance.

I was asked to take medical leave instead of quitting outright (so I have time to land on my feet). But now I have no hope in myself. No confidence. I feel like I will fail no matter where I go now. Need advice. Very upset..
