I'm sorry to hear that you have been through so much. It is not easy to cope with so many things happening at once. I'm not sure if your employer can force you back to work. Most likely not. You may have some type of disability protection. You may want to ask the psychologist for help with your employer situation. The doctor can do an evaluation and help you find a way to stay home until you can get treatment. You can also consult an attorney for help. There are alternatives to sertraline. But without knowing your medical history, there is no way to know for sure what would work. Each person has to try out medications to find out what works with their own body chemistry. What works for one person may not work for another. Here is a site that may help you: http://www.helpguide.org/mental/medications_depression.htm Kate
