like, little things, that maybe get them out of something, or excuses or whatever?
No cant say I have, if there's anything going on there's a massive chance I cant do it anyway due to the depression/social phobia so it wouldn't be an excuse, secondly I personally find most people are somewhat unsympathetic to mental health issues, especially depression so I don't think they would buy it anyway as a valid reason for not doing something.(just my experience no one elses of course)
I've heard people have gotten off exams using that as an excuse.
I don't used it as an excuse as i know depression is not considered all that deliberating even to some professionals from my experience.
Nah, never used it as an excuse, but I often get accused of doing that by my parents.
ive gotten about 400 poems out of it. Im currently copyrighting them but when im ready i am going to publish and sell books of them in pdf format online.
I'll let you know when i have things set up.
The author of 'prozac nation.'
I got out of a university physics exam due to it... But frankly, I'd rather have -not- had the panic attack and written it instead. I had to get a proper medical form, and at the same time I went onto an antidepressant.
I wouldn't say 'excuse'. I would say depression has been a legitimate reason for not doing certain things. I wouldn't say missing such things was to my advantage, but my ultimate disadvantage.
I did once. I regret it every single day.
I'm too embarrassed to tell most people I suffer with depression, so no. The only person that knows I'm depressed is my mother.
