> It's me again .... When I contacted the Y to let them know I needed a "leave," my boss asked that I follow up "with a note from my doctor." Doesn't that seem a bit excessive? 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.

Did I miss something? I was thinking you 'volunteered' for ninety minutes a week taking care of the kids at the y in exchange for access to the facilities. You have been doing you part with the kids, but not taking advantage of the benefits, ie use of the facilities. Why, as you say, is it any of their business why you need to leave, and a doctors note? Do you plan to come back? is there an official contract involved in this reciprocal arrangement? I am confused. I guess, if were me, and you know how I and everybody here loves giving opinions, is I would ask for an explanation of the necessity for the request of a note from doctor..."Excuse me, you asked for a note from my doctor, could you explain why you need one, what purpose it would serve?"
The other comments were also things I would consider...resign, go somewhere else...lots of choices
