'Yeah, Mr V. Sure he will… Oh look, I'm out of the gates. He can't do NOTHING to me now!'

'Ah, here it is. The Building. Oh God, the receptionist is already smiling at me in sympathy. Lady, I may have Depression, but you don't need to give me a pity look! I'm here to get better! For my family, my friends…'
