“Hey boss, I can’t come into the office today — I don’t even have the energy to get out of bed.”

Almost nobody will call their boss and report sick that way (if you do it though: You have my fullest respect because you are the cherries on top of the whipping cream on top of our slightly broken society).

Why?

Because we fear negative comments, nasty looks and the eternal stigma that comes with having a mental illness.

Because we still have to listen to insensitive statements…
