I'm embarrassed by this, but after I finished my undergrad -- well, and during it too -- I was dealing quite heavily with depression and anxiety. After undergrad it became unbearable and I ended up checking myself in to a hospital program here, that while not live in and full time, still took up a considerable amount of time to the point where working would be impossible (if I were even in a place to do it mentally).
I'm much better now, but I'm left in the odd position of having an almost two year gap on my resume that I don't know how to explain. It's also not something I can say, "Oh I was in the hospital" as I'm afraid that it would make employers hesitant to even want to deal with me which I could understand.
Does anyone have any advice? Has anyone dealt with something similar?
