I have severe depression and anxiety. Normally I can control it but this tax season was bad. I spiked to over 110 hours a week towards the end and I couldn’t control the panic attacks...

If you don’t have time to do something, can you delegate down or can you add someone to the team to support? If not, take care of your mental health first. The work is not important enough to sacrifice yourself for.

I think I could get back to even ground if there was a plan of action but there isn’t. My director keeps saying I work too much but then reprimands me when I say I don’t have time to do something. I honestly don’t know what to do because I love my work but not feeling like I am under constant threat.

Add HR to the discussion. You have an invisible disability and by law they can’t treat you like this

People are so unsupportive at work. Your director shouldn’t reprimand you for just communicating that you don’t have capacity to finish something. I agree with the other person. Maybe see if you can add someone to the team to help with the work load ? Maybe you can sit down with your Director and have an honest conversation about work and the balance you need etc ? I really feel for you and wish to luck with your mental health struggle. I have similar struggles so I do feel for you.
