Ya'll, I'm sick

I'm not one to complain & I usually just soldier through when I don't feel well, but this time, I'm sick. Not just a little runny nose & maybe a little sore throat sick, but full on, "What truck just backed up over me for the 10th time?" sick.

So sick that my doctor told me to stay home from work for the next few days. When I told my boss that Mr. Potts was going to stop by the office to pick some things up for me, she told me to take the rest of the week off & recover. She's fabulous. I'm sure I'll be checking in, but the time to recover will be so nice.

The thing is, I'm sure there are tons of people out there who if they're super sick don't stay home. Instead, they bring their germs into the office. Sharing them, as the case may be. I definitely think that if you're under the weather, you should not expose anyone to your germs. Do you stay home if you're awfully ill or do you go into work?

Hope you feel better. Being sick is no fun, but catch up on shows and relax!

I am all over staying home and getting well! It drives me nuts how my hubby continues to work and go to the gym and it always gets worse.

I'm one of those awful people that goes to work sick. In fact, unless I have the stomach flu and literally cannot get out of the bathroom, I go to work no matter what.

I'm sick this week. It stinks, but I'm expected to be there everysingleday. So, I go.

I usually would try to keep working when I'm sick, but I'm a nanny now, so I wouldn't want to infect the kids. Unfortunately I still have to work when THEY'RE sick and I caught their illnesses way too many times last year. :(

Hope you feel better soon!

I am a firm believer in staying the eff home when you're sick. I don't care if it's your nose or your butt that's running...keep it at home.

I work in a small office where germs are spread all too easily. I feel like a jerk when I call in, but I'd rather be that jerk who stays home instead of that jerk who comes to work with something contagious. (I know, I'm not very nice tonight...I'm sorry.)

I hope you're feeling better soon...it seems like everyone is feeling under the weather these days!!! :(

Hope you feel better! We are in the same boat this week - I have been working from home all week. My office doesn't allow us to come in when we are sick since we are all wired up to work remotely. It's nice, because I don't have to worry about catching other people's germs - especially with H1N1 going around. I'm hoping you get to feeling better very soon!!

Annie said...

OH NO :(
so sorry you are not feeling well.
i think you should stay home, in bed and rest up!
if i'm really sick, can't move no motivation to get out of bed then i know i'm too sick for work.
hope you are feeling better really soon!

Jane said...

Get well soon! I am all about using my sick days if needed! No need to get everyone else sick too!

Aw, i hope you feel better soon! That's nice that you don't have to worry about going into work this week.
I agree with you, i don't think it's considerate to be around too many people when sick, it just spreads the germs.

Aww, Mrs. Potts, I hope you feel better soon! I hate being sick but usually go into work/school when I am sick. You're probably wise to stay home and I'm sure the working folk in your office thank you for not spreading germs! Take care of yourself! xo

I'm sorry you're feeling bad! I definitely stay home when I'm sick. No use making myself miserable and possibly spreading germs. Hope you feel better soon!

I usually stay home. I hate it when sick people come to work and expose me to what they have.
