I feel lucky that I have been able to maintain emplyment all along through my depressions. However, in the past few years, my performance at work has suffered. I have always had a good record as an employee, with very good feedback, and the past two years, my performance reviews have been not so great, leading to extended probation for another 6th months. My performance has improved in recent months, as I've felt better and better, but I still have a lot of work to do to get back on track.

One way my depression has intruded into work over the years is the number of sick days I have taken. But for a long time, I was able to keep the depression at home. Last year and the year before, I couldn't do that anymore, and my work started to suffer a lot. With my improved mood lately, it feels good to not have that as a problem.

Even though I have been feeling increasingly better for for about 10 months now, the catch up at work is slower. I still get a bit overwhelmed sometimes with multi-tasking, etc. but I am learning how to manage it better. Part of the problem, too, is that this job (past 2 years) challenges my organizational weaknesses a lot (weaknesses I have depressed or not).
