...for a month with pre natal anxiety/depression while I wait to be assessed for therapy. The doc has kindly put pregnancy related illness on the note. I would rather not divulge any further info to boss. How do I tell her? she is always very nosey and wants to know all the details. I get terrified calling in sick for one day so no idea how I am going to deal with telling her it's for a month. the thought of it is making me more anxious. any suggestions on how to handle it?

thank you thanks thanks

Firstly huge hugs. Secondly can someone else call for you or drop the note in? It's reasonable with anxiety to not be able to deal with a stressful situation like that. Glad your Dr seems supportive. X

have reported above post

Fuzzyduck - you have been signed off, you're ill, you can just repeat what the doctor has written - pregnancy related illness. Just say that. No need to explain any further.

Huge hugs, and the first post has some good suggestions too
