Stress leave in California?

Question Details: I recently left my stressful job due to depression and stress. My doctor and I both wrote a letter to my employer stating that the job has caused depression and stress and I'm taking an indefinite leave of absence. I work part-time and do not have any benefits whatsoever. What do I do in my case? Can they hire someone else, although I dont plan on going back to work for them?
