I rang my manager just now to let him know that I am not going to be in today but that I am seeing my doctor (actually my psychiatrist, but I don’t need to tell him that) and I get this:
“Are you actually sick, or is it just like before?”
Depression is not an illness, boys and girls, according to the wisdom of my manager. So therefore, that makes me a scamming malingerer, right?
And no, I don’t think I am over reacting to his comment. Not combined with his tone of voice.
Feeling even worse now.
