    Anyone ever pulled a sickie and felt bad about it?

    Is it ever justified? For example, if you suffer from mental health problems like depression or anxiety and your driven to the point where your fed up.

    I wouldn't call it a sickie, whenever I call in sick I always have the reason to. I do suffer from mental health issues and I have been off work because of it and I am always genuine about it and I feel like honesty is where it's at, when you "pull a sicke" because you can't be assed, I believe you putting others and yourself at disadvantage and people who are genuinely ill or have to be off due to mental health problems they might not be taken seriously as lots of people take the piss. plus it's good to save your sick periods for when you actually need them as if you use them up for pulling a sickie and then you are really ill then no one will give a flying cuz you over the allowance.
