    Called in sick?

    Hey guys!

    When was the last time you called in sick? Do you fight through your sickness and still go to work, or do you take extra precautions for your body?

    Today was the first time I have called in sick to work since I had appendicitis years ago. I usually fight through the pain because I hate having to make other people pick up my slack.

    I had to call in today though because I was not feeling good and I have a huge test tomorrow. I need to be my best self if I am going to do good in it!

    I should really take care of my body better!

    What about you?

    Hey Erin!

    Good luck on your test and good for you for taking care of yourself!

    The last time I called in sick was about a month ago. I got a really terrible cold and was out for half a week! I took the rest I needed though and recovered and that's what's important! I rarely get sick so it wasn't a huge deal.

    Have a good one!

    I think taking care of yourself is very important, that is why we have sick days. We also sometimes need to take mental health days as well. I haven’t taken one yet this year because I am out a lot lately from the classroom for trainings that’s i have had to do. I definitely plan on using a couple sick days later in the year. Probably around finals time for me so I can spend more time on my grad school and then I guess maybe if I get sick. :)

    The last time I had to call in sick was this past February. I got a nasty case of the flu, so I was out for a whole week until I was better! I hated being sick the whole time, as my body ached, I was chilled yet was running a high fever, so I wasn't allowed to crank up the heating blanket and burrow under it. I was only allowed to sleep under two very thin sheets that didn't really provide any warmth, but I was glad when my fever broke, even though it was at the cost of having to wash my sheets (my mom realized that my fever was gone when she went in to check on me and found that I was profusely sweating in my sleep!). To prevent that from happening, I'll be taking generous doses of Vitamin C. I'm in graduate school now, so I CAN'T afford to miss something unless I absolutely have to!
