  1. "Bravery" to take a day off? Is she serious? Unadulterated laziness. Either her position at the company is not needed, or her work ethic is so toxic that the boss is actually happy she's not there.

    I wonder if she'd be singing the same tune if she went to her doctor in excruciating pain only to be told, "I'm sorry, but your doctor made a brave decision to take a mental health day. Sorry!"

  2. I think if you have a legitimate diagnosed mental illness you can need a day from time to time. Just normal depression or stress is not ok. Just take a vacation day like everyone else. That's what they are for.

  3. It's no joke. Mental health can effect your actual physical health. My best friends brother in law had a massive heart attack from stress. Not over weight. Not a smoker and ate healthy. Dude had a heart attack in his garage at 48 and is dead.
    Take time to breath. Take a moment to relax and step away from the world. Your work will be there when you get back.
