Feeling Blah

I love my job.  I really do.
But some days I really dislike the fact that no matter how I am feeling, I have to be there. I'm 'essential'.
Plus, with me having to go on Short Term Disability with my surgery, I have little to no sick time, and the time that I am accumulating will have to be used next week on my scheduled sick day.
I really don't feel well today. Tired, sneezing, stuffy, no appetite. Just BLAH.

I know a lot of you are probably thinking 'If you're sick don't go, you'll get everyone sick'.  And I agree.  But I probably got this from someone at work, because again, we're essential and are required to be there at all costs....even if it means getting everyone around you sick.  It's the one thing that causes a lot of tension and contension at work.

Now, on the other hand, last week during "Sandy" we were put on Reduced Operations and because we ARE essential, I got paid double time and a half for being at work that day.  It'll be a nice paycheck next week.

But right now....BLAH.

I just hope today is quiet.

I'm sorry to hear about you not feeling well. Take it easy and delegate! That's your insurance for staying on top of things but not getting run down and overwhelmed. I hope this weekend leads to more rest and recovery for you.
