So, I was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder, recurrent, severe when I was 15. As I've grown, I've learned to cope with it as best I can. However, occasionally, one of these episodes is severe enough to where I just can't get out of bed in the morning. Colors look less vibrant; I don't want to hang out with anyone; I don't want to play video games; I don't want to watch t.v.; I don't eat, but can force myself to eat a light meal; I get horrible headaches and stomach cramps. I don't want to do anything aside from sleep or lay in bed. Start time was 2:30, and I didn't manage to get in until 4:30. Being able to come in at all was a ing fight. If I miss a day due to unbridled depression, would this be applicable to the federal law about being able to call in due to sickness? Can they fire me or write me up for that? I've worked for UPS for almost 3 months, and I've called in once because my aunt was in the hospital on death's door. This would be my first sick call-in. Obviously, if I can get out of bed in the morning, I'll go. I haven't felt like this for a couple years... Inb4, "just go to work ." You really have no idea what it's like.
