HelloToday was my 2nd absence from clinical due to illness (depression, no sleep). I have been depressed for along time (I am on antidepressant and see counselor 1x wk). We are only allowed 2 absences total for whole semester. I have 0 absences in my classes, grades, etc are good.I am going to write instructor to explain my situation (get dr note) about my depression so possibly I won't get F for course. Doing good in class/theory work. Has anyone else out there had this problem. Much of my depression does have to do with being child of alcoholic (i attend Al Anon meetings). I don't drink. It has effected my self esteem. Thanks for listening.
