I demanded a second opinion, so the minute my sick note expired I consulted another doctor.

That first charlatan had failed to grasp the severity of my symptoms.

"You don't look incapacitated with depression", he said. "I can't sign you off work beyond Monday".

On Monday morning I slumped down opposite my new doctor.

"Depressed?", he said. "Poor chap. I will sign you off work for two months"

What a difference a few days made to my psychiatric welfare.

It was as much as I could do not to punch the air and pirouette past the row of waiting patients.

    The last sentence made me laugh because of the irony of it all. Good drabble!
