First of all, some info that might be important:
I'm a Web developer at a company out of ~10 people with huge customers
Work there since 21st of September this year (not even 2 weeks)
Boss does know about my mental health
I can be fired (with no reason named) within the next 6 months
Before I got the job, I was in an internship with the company I work for now. I told them about my illness (mental) in the interview for the internship. I did so, because I felt it would be much easier for me that way. I had the internship for around 10 weeks with a little break for my final exams. In the last week I got told they want me to start my work as a Web developer there after I finished my finals. My Boss said in that conversation:
We had a guy some years ago, that needed to take a break for weeks almost 4 times a year. So I don't want to be rude, but I want to ask you, if maybe this would be the same for you?
At that time I felt like I’m stable and life finally turns out to be great! So my answer on this was following:
To be honest, I was in a clinic once for like 4 weeks. But that was 3 years ago and I don't think I will need something like that again.
This was back then. Now, around 2 months later, I do feel REALY unstable and sensitive what goes down to some bigger problems. My therapist told me to go to a clinic, in her opinion it was important and needed.
Now my question:
Should I go to a clinic and take a break from work? If so, how can I handle that? How to bring this topic up?
I’m scared of being fired. Or misunderstood since what i said in the interview. I don't want them to think bad - or get rid of me.
