I have been sicker than I've been in a very long time since Saturday. I still don't feel great, but I'm going to go into work tomorrow, even if they have to send me home. It seems to be just a bad cold but for someone who never gets sick it's pretty rough. The other half has it too (as do several of our friends), so they can vouch for me that it hasn't been fun.
I've never known the actual guilt of calling in sick to work. It sucks. I'm still wondering what they did for staff on my station from 3-4 today.
So there it is. I'm looking forward to a nice long sleep tonight, fueled by NyQuil, and hopefully some speedy non-coughing/sneezing/nose-running work tomorrow, fueled by Advil Cold & Sinus.
