I was diagnosed with major depression around 4 years ago. Told I’d have to be on antidepressants for 3-5 years. Sometimes I have severe depressive episodes. Recently it’s been impacting my work performance. I’ve also started taking more sick days as a coping mechanism since being at work seems to make it worse, especially granted I’m working with a d*ck of a manager. Always been a high performer (before this period, which really sucks). Really want to quit but don’t have a new job yet.Advice pls

Cross posting this but could use the female perspective — Got a really substantial (~40%) mid year raise after I brought in a basically unsolicited competing offer from one of our peers. My firm typically only adjusts salary on an annual basis in March, and I’m pretty worried I’ll see a smaller than normal annual raise this spring to “make up for” my out of sequence mid year raise. Any advice on advocating for myself to ensure that doesn’t happen?
