I got fired this morning after being devoted to this company for over 3 years and the reason they gave me is that they no longer need pt sales people which is bulcrap because it was fine for 3 years. I personally think because I've been dealing with personal issue (which they don't know about) and I've been slacking off for the past few months but it was commission only job so it's not as the bottom line was hurt.

What really hurts is that I really liked the job. I was just too depressed to work and too embarassed/scared to admit it. I don't regret NOT telling my boss about my depression because I've learned that it's best to keep this illness to myself and a few close friends. But I am still very sad, dissapointed, hurt and of course, more depressed.

Can you please tell me something that will make me feel better. I feel like such a failure and a loser.

I am sorry but years ago I choose the other way and admitted to my boss I was in therapy as the job stress was too much.

Aubrey, you state "but it was commission only job so it's not as the bottom line was hurt".

I am also angry because after speaking to an attorney I was told that without a contract in place which will list a set of expectations in regards to the job, they had no grounds. Also, in my state one would need to give an employee a warning of some kind that their performance is not acceptable. Now I am not sure whether I should even pursue this because it will be a bridge burned with the former employer. What do you think?

My opinion, I wouldn't go the lawyer route.
