I am now diagnosed with moderate depression. I had my doctor write me a letter to file for a leave but I didn't end up using it. It turns out...that I don't have leave privileges. Fortunately or unfortunately, I didn't have to worry about leaves/resignation because I am fired. I can understand why they fired me and I saw it coming but the way I was fired... annoys whatever it is left to be annoyed of me.
I had to go back to work after calling in sick for one day. Very awkward. :***: They said I might be marked AWOL.
They made me do a performance evaluation earlier than my colleagues. It includes self-evaluation
and it was hard for my depressed brain to process. After that, they made me report on my day off for the actual firing stage which involved the uncomfortable topic of why's. It was so uncomfortable, I don't know what I was saying anymore.
Eventually, the fact that I was depressed surfaced.
Then, they read my performance evaluation which scored negatively
. I know my performance was downhill last week but I think I deserved a higher score that what they have written.
Finally, I was fired... and I found out that I still "have" to work until the end of the month.
Apparently, they cannot just fire people instantly.
