Over the last few months, I've been getting more and more depressed, and this has been feeding into me getting later and later everyday, and this culminated in me getting the final warning of all time. I'm completely in the wrong for tardiness, but because of this warning, the depression is even worse, and I'm just about to quit because I just need a break. However, I kinda already bled through a bunch of my vacation, and I don't think that I have any.
A bit more details:
- I'm salaried doing computer stuff, so my position is pretty stable, and that's why my employer has given me a lot of mercy
- My employer and I have been on good terms. He likes my work and we speak out random things a bunch, but is rightfully fed up with my tardiness.
I think that I'm on good enough terms to request a week off, and I think if they're not willing to do so and/or are going to bring up my misdeeds (there's a critic that is ten times as loud as they are, me), I'm thinking about putting in notice on the spot and after notice period, I'll just chill for a week before going the job hunt. I am prepared for the job hunt being slightly harder because of less negotiation power.
Is this course of action too unwise? What are some general things that I might be missing? Please be kind to me, as it's my first question, and the last thing I need is people being rude, but I will take this question down if this isn't a suitable question
Update 11/23/22: Waiting was the play. Pretty much the day after I posted this question, God beat up my car, and got to work from home for two days, which was really helpful. The process of taking care of my dead car kinda snapped me out a little. I still deal with depression and stuff, but I get a few days off for Thanksgiving which is incredibly cool. I should still find a therapist though
