I was diagnosed with reactive depression about a year ago, and it's probably been quite clear to a lot of people at work that I've not been myself for a long time. It's reached a point now where I'm exhausted by trying to hide it at work and would like some support. As far as I can see, it hasn't affected my teaching (great GCSE results this year! ) but it is affecting other areas of my life. Does anyone have any experience of telling their headteacher? How far might it affect my promotion prospects at school? Should I tell my head of dept? She's pretty much guessed anyway! I'm all in a lather about it as I'm fed up of pretending that I'm ok.
