For me. I was close to being fired at one point and had to take medical leave. I am truly amazed at how happy I am able to feel again!!! Don’t give up guys happiness is possible

Friend killed himself in front of me. I had really bad PTSD. I took medical leave and went to a clinic for 8 hours a day to work on myself. My team now is also the nicest team I have ever been a part of. It’s reminded me that not everyone sucks. At one point I didn’t even want to associate with people anymore. I did all of this without medication as well which is a big feat for me.

So happy for you! I’m currently in a situation where my PTSD/depression, etc negatively impacted my performance. I am the second from the bottom on my scatterplot. I don’t know what to do. Any advice? I have mostly bounced back from the PTSD episode so med leave prob wouldn’t make sense and I am finally on a good project with a good team.

Omg yes!!!!!! I went through the exact same thing literally. I am also embarrassed. I got kicked off 3 projects. I was supposed to be promoted to senior as well but I am still the entry level rank. Which is very embarrassing for me because people always ask why I’m not a senior yet. So I understand trust me. All my friends got promoted and I didn’t. I got an underperformed rating last year as well.

Congratulations. I know it’s a battle everyday and really admire your resilience. Only if you feel like answering this — what are things that your team is doing now to create a safe, productive atmosphere? And how can we make sure we as (future) managers do those things for team members moving forward? No worries if this isn’t top of mind right now though. Most importantly, congrats again. It’s truly inspiring. Sending all the good vibes.

Thank you! Wishing you all the best on this (awesome) project and going forward.

Amazing!! Congratulations! Such a great thing!

How did you have that conversation with your firm? Are you fairly senior in your career?

Nope I’m entry level. Graduated in December 2017 from grad school. I just spoke with the people consultant and she recommended me to take leave. She said if I didn’t I would probably get on a performance improvement plan, which is basically saying we are firing you.

How did you take medical leave? I’m about to get fired, but I have depression and was looking to take leave. Need to just ask for more time to take care of myself.

Thank you. This helps OP!!
