I'm glad you're at least in a university town, as long as you're there in the outback. ;^)

I know exactly what you mean about switching doctors. If you trust him and feel you work well with him, then don't leave.

As for work, check out your possibilities for disability leave. Your boss and your co-workers know, and it sounds like they are supportive, so why feel you have to tiptoe around them? Say that you need some time off, with all those events you've had to deal with, and I imagine (if you've got vacation time built up that you can use instead of disability) that they'll say "It's about time!" more than "What a nut!". Above all, make sure you know what protections you have under the Americans with Disabilities Act ... so that in case something DOES happen at work, you know what protections you have. The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill ( have a great factsheet on the ADA ... and I have it posted on my own website as a PDF ( Take a look at it -- it's got some good advice.

Be strong,
