My absence record at work is fine. I’ve only had 1 day off in the last year. I’m just about to put a sick note into work, because I feel like I’m getting worse and my doctor has upped my medication.

I told my manager on Friday about my mental health and he just kind of shrugged me off.

I’m worried in case they have a go at me for putting in a sick note.

Hi Mr S

Like you said, your absence record is fine. And it s far to be the case of everyone.
With this last stressful year, almost everyone is more struggling (with the restrictions, the confinements, curfew etc). I see that the need of therapists is growing in my company too.
So I think you don t have to worry too much about it.

Furthermore, there is nothing you can do about this hypotetical problem right now.
Maybe you will not have problems at all in your company.
If later the sick note causes you some problems, you probably have legal recourses, don t you ? (I don t know the law and your rights in your country, but in mine it can be considered as a discrimination I think).
