Well, you could try asking your doctor to write something vague. "Given Ms. So-and-so's current condition, it is my judgement that she should be given time to receive the appropriate treatments, signed Whoever, MD."

An appropriately vague but official letterhead (XYZ Hospital - omitting the department, for instance) would probably nix all further questions.

Come on, we're only talking an hour and a half a week in the nursery to help out (and I wasn't getting over to use the facility anyhow). I'm not particularlyy comfortable asking my psychiatrist to write a note saying I need a break for mental health reasons -- and is this really necessary? Maybe I should just resign altogether, and just start paying the $32 a month to join -- or to join another facility.
