Some people need their fucking jobs because they have bills to fucking pay and they have no other choice because of legal reasons.
My guess is that most people who need their fucking job doesn't miss work because they are off binge drinking and then have to figure out a good way to LIE to their employer about their whereabouts on the day where they should have been working.
Anyway.. that's just a guess of what I figured someone who really needed to pay the bills and really needed that job would not be doing those things.
Oh ... but the depression. Totally justified. You should try cutting, or your friend should. It helps because "they need to cut themselves to FEEL" or some shit. g'luck with your note.
