All that happened amid a time of family tragedy leading to a spiralling bout of work-related stress and depression for me. I've now been off sick for a few weeks and am on anti-depressants. My boss is sitting tight. Should I seek a quick resolution and walk, or stay put and be pushed?
A: Unless it becomes an immediate necessity, this is not the moment to make an irrevocable decision. You've defined your own predicament with admirable clarity: you're right in the middle of this 'spiralling bout' of family tragedy, work-related stress and clinical depression. You must break this circle - and the only way to do that is first to get completely well.
