Re: To disclose or not?

Dear Johnken,
The work place can be quite toxic, particularly, at present.
You would be surprised at what managers e.t.c get away with!
Wishing you well as you try to come to terms with what has happened.
Best Regards

Re: New to group and don’t know what to do

Dear Rsxo, thank you, I was trying to think of what to say - but you have said it. Dear bestrong, I can only add that recovery takes time, and it is also possible for the depression to return (just the nature of things unfortunately) and so we try different types of meds at different doses.
