I know I am depressed, suicidal at times, but I am afraid to seek help because I wonder if it will jeopardize my ability to work. I am currently in school (again), but have always worked with children, first in childcare and then as a teacher. I like to be in a room full of kids because then I don\'t have any time to think about myself; I find it rewarding to be able to solve their problems, even if I feel hopeless about solving my own. I am afraid that if I seek help for depression I will not be able to get work with children if I return to work, even though it has never affected my ability to teach. Can I be denied work with kids because of being treated for depression? what if I wanted to become a foster parent? Thanks.
