Our expert says:
There can be a difference between unhappiness and Depression, and either or both may need to be dealt with. The early morning wakening is typical of Depression, and treatment should include medication and CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ).
Much of what you describes sounds like unhappiness, and related to a highly selfish boss and team which, whether or not you are unhappy, does not want to do without you. Maybe it'd be worth consulting the Dept of Labour and a good labour lawyer, as it sounds as though the company may be allowing this guy to disregard the requirements of labour law and regulation.
Get a proper asessment of your mental state and the bst treatment for it, from a good local psychiatrist, too. And i you are ill and this could be related to your working conditions, this could also be legally relevant.
Manwhile, why not let your part-time business grow a bit more ( and the economy is improving a bit ) so it becomes a more viable alternative for you.
