RE: WILL I BE FIRED

It is suggested that you get medical advice as it appears that you are suffering from extreme stress. This advice would at least put you in a situation where you could try and tackle the problem. Once the Medical Practitioner has seen you they will send in a medical certificate. You can't be fired for being ill.
