So a bit of change in plans that is making me feel less freaked out.
See, I have a lot of PTO. So I am opting to take 2 weeks off with the PTO. In that time, I will, hopefully, be able to see a psychiatrist and get a consult from someone who feels like they can advise me about taking leave.
You see, after some checking, I confirmed that my primary care doctor won't do disability paperwork for something that is primarily psychological (I do understand this), and my therapist is a doctor of social work...which means that he cannot help with the forms that the state gives.
So, 2 weeks PTO and maybe more leave after that. Maybe after 2 weeks, I wil feel more on an even keel. I'm keeping my options open.
