    Cost of claiming in Bishops Stortford


    Depression is a common illness that many people will suffer with over the course of their lives. Sometimes depression will occur because of a traumatic event or difficult time in a person’s life, but at other times it will simply creep on naturally, with no obvious cause. More people suffer from depression than most people think, generally because it is a taboo subject that most people will not bring up.

    If you are suffering from depression then you may need to broach the subject with your employers, or other people. Here are some tips on explaining your condition and what it means for your day to day life for the foreseeable future.

    Speak to a doctor first

    Before you explain what you are going through to anyone else, see a doctor so you can find out exactly what you are suffering from and how it is likely to progress. There are various types of depression and various ways to treat your symptoms so you need to know all of the details before you can explain it to anyone else.

    Explain what you need

    When telling your employer, for example, what you are suffering with, you will need to explain how it is going to affect your life and thus your job. If you don’t feel capable of working at all then you can ask for a leave of absence, or you can ask if it is possible to go part time or work from home. Try to decide in advance what you are capable of first, though, so you can be sure of living up to it.

    Do your research

    If you want to explain what you are suffering from then you need to understand it. Look online to find out some more information about depression, the symptoms and what is likely to happen. If you think it might help, you could even print off some helpful material to give to the people you are explaining your illness to.
