Do you have the sick and vacation leave available? I did years ago. I went to my personal Dr. and explained I was stressing and told him what those several things were. I told him I intended to look for another job on my time off and that I would only be allowed 3 days off with pay without a Dr's excuse. I explained that I had built up 160 hrs. and felt I was entitled to it. He turned and asked how many weeks I needed and wrote out the order. My employer was ticked off!!! but they could do nothing about it because I was under the care of the physician. So you might go that route if you have a family Dr. Do you have short term disability at work? That too might cover you somehow.
