can someone go over how disability works. I know I can go to HR about it but I'm a bit embarrassed about it. Few months ago my father passed away and I'm still not over it. I had 2 works off for funeral reasons and etc but I still didn't feel mentally ready to go back but I had too to get my paychecks. I have a lot of mood swings at work and feel angry/down a lot. I heard I could get disability for depression or stress. My only worry though is how would it effect my pay as I need the income to help my mom more than ever.
