Telling an employer about mental illness

As most of you know I have a lot of problems going on right now. As most of you know I've been word vomiting about those problems for the past 2 months or so. I need serious help and I'm trying really hard to get it. I called my OB, she is trying to get me in to see the therapist today. I'm working from home sick but I'm not sure what to do if I can't make it in tomorrow. I have no vacation for the rest of the year (I know it's not that far away but that's also taking 3 weeks unpaid during maternity leave recently), I used all my FMLA time up for my maternity leave so won't be eligible again until Sept 2014. I'm afraid I'm going to lose my job getting help. This is a busy time of the year for us and I am already feeling buried and unable to do my job. I'm scared to even tell my boss what is going on for fear of them not being supportive. I don't know what to do and I'm really scared.
