Re: Depression better than Nardil PCB

I've never been on Nardil, but the insomnia from Parnate was rough. I found 25mg of Seroquel really helped (seemed to augment the antidepressant effect as well).

I am in a (sort of) similar boat career wise. I work in a stressful job (in education). The behavior in schools in my area is pretty bad. You're hated not just by the students, but their parents, the media etc. etc. I've known that I hate my job which has caused me to save money like a squirrel. I could probably last a few decades off savings (but not enough to stop working entirely). I may not have to quit, because, here in Ontario a change in leadership means that I may soon be fired from my job.

Before making a quick decision, I would speak with a counselor or financial advisor. It seems strange that you couldn't take a medical leave (I'm not sure about the rules in the U.S. but in Canada you cannot be fired because of a mental illness).

Insomnia can mess with ones ability to think clearly and process emotional experiences. I know that when I don't sleep I become more impulsive and find it difficult to process my emotions.

Sorry, rambling here... but again, I would speak with H.R. collogues, your doctor etc. about your thoughts to be sure you are making the right decision. It could be that leaving your job is the right thing to do, I don't know. I just know that depression and anxiety can sometimes cause short term thinking, an inability to fully explore all available options in a situation.
