As many of you know, I’ve been having severe difficulties at work, and it’s been affecting my mental health. I do have intermittent FMLA (time off under the Family Medical Leave Act, for all y’all non-Americans) because of it, but at the moment I feel a great need to be away from my job for a chunk of time. I just emailed my psychiatrist to ask if he would amend the FMLA forms and give me 4-6 weeks away to try to recover my equilibrium, maybe try out new meds, and at least keep myself from a complete breakdown (or getting fired, which would be worse!).
I would ask your prayers that he agrees, and for my emotional balance whatever happens.
I got to go to Adoration again yesterday and that definitely helped. That would be one lovely thing about having some time off – I could go every Friday, when they have Adoration, the rosary, the Divine Mercy chaplet and Benediction – instead of only on alternate Fridays when I already have a day off.
Thank you all.
