A few years ago I was diagnosed with PTSD and received treatment for about 3 years. After the treatment I returned to work and have been doing fine, until a recent incident at work triggered it again. After not being able to control the extreme anxiety, panic attacks, mood swings and paranoia I returned for treatment to my original doctor.
My physican has taken me off work for a couple of weeks to see how I adjust and if I may need meds again. I was given a FMLA letter from my employer. I'm a bit confused because I don't know if I should file a Workers Comp claim against my employer for their actions which I know caused my PTSD to flare up again. I was doing quite well over the past 6 years managing the PTSD..
I can't afford to lose my job of 6.5 years but there is a part of me that is like in protective mood and very guarded.. thinking I should quit. But then I think, why should I quit.
Just need some constructive advice to help me make the best decision for me and my family right now. Thank you.
