Been depressed for about a couple months now. I haven't been in to the office consistently for months, because my CP has been a bitch to me from the start of service. For instance, she doesn't even acknowledge my presence, even when I say hello to her.

I'm having tea tonight because I have diarrhea but if I'm not seen cooking anything my host family will force me to eat. Also, biting ants have invaded my toilet, slightly complicating my current circumstances;)
