Both T and I have been feeling ill since Sunday. I finally stayed home from work Wednesday, figuring if I took a day to rest up, I’d feel better. It didn’t work. I don’t think I’m contagious, so I’m going in today anyway. (I work largely by myself and am careful about germs.)
We get a somewhat unreasonable amount of sick leave (in my opinion), yet I still feel bad using it. Even when I was home yesterday, I intended on “making up” half of the hours I was out. This isn’t because I’m incredibly busy at work this week, rather because I don’t want to be a slacker.
If I can be productive the next two days, I have the weekend to fully recover. Let’s hope next week is better!
How much sick leave do you get? Do you feel bad using it?
