This morning I went into work suffering not only Mondayitis, but also the flu (still). I had dragged myself in there after the weekend purely because I know I had a lot of work to do. For the first two hours, I was greeted by my colleagues with the following comments:
Wow, what's wrong with you?
You look like shit!
Don't come near me!
Way to make someone feel good about themselves!
So I upped and left the joint, and returned home, stopping along the way to drop another $40 at the chemist buying more vitamins, tablets and tissues. If anyone has felt some sort of benefit from my continued sickness, it would be the local chemist. They've made a whack of profit from me.
I worked from home for a few hours, and after I started to feel tired decided to take a nap. Just like that I was nearly out for 3 hours; I guess I needed it. It's not even 9pm at night yet but I can already feel I'm going to fall asleep instantly the moment I allow myself to close my eyes again.
My challenge is that I have some big deadlines at work coming up, and being so sick has not helped. So much to do, so little time. I'm taking the day off tomorrow again, or staying home rather (I will probably end up working), and will try and rest up again. But I hope I'm better by Wednesday!
I promise never to take my health for granted ever again.
