I would like to get something straight with a few people who work with me: Depression and alcoholism can fucking kill a person, OK? So I'm sorry you had to cover my desk shifts, but my ass was hanging out of a hospital gown at the time.
Now, presumably because of my absence, they're calling in some kind of counselor to talk to each of us confidentially about "staff morale." Did I damage staff morale by getting addicted to a lethal narcotic and sinking into a slight gloom? Oops.
