What happens when you disclose to your firm that you've recently been diagnosed with depression and anxiety? I know I suffer from those things, I've just never had to disclose a disability to my job before and I'm kind of nervous about it.

I disclosed my disability. You should read up as I’m not sure you necessarily have to tell them what your disability is. Just what reasonable accommodations you require.

And I should have said this first- I’m sorry you are going through this - stay strong- you are not alone!!

Hi
I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression in 2018. Since I completed years of cognitive behavioral therapy to try to make myself less emotional and feeling driven.
My boss made sure to tell me that she was concerned about how I would need praise and reassurance. Here we are, not even a year in to this position and I’m being shamed and guilted for taking a couple mental health days.

I don’t think you have to tell them. I hope that your team is understanding of your needs.
