Yes: It may be a bigger problem for your employer! if you are unhappy on your job it can affect coworkers and customers. If your feelings are interfering with your life in other ways, i would suggest getting evaluated by a mental health professional.

Yes: Being off work can definitely be depressing. At the very least i would see a therapist and if he or she thinks you need medication then you can see a psychiatrist.
