Mental health day?

Hi! Just wondering how many people take days off work here and there because they’re struggling with everything. A friend of mine regularly has a day or two off work to get some headspace.

For context, we’ve both been signed off work with stress before.

I feel desperate for a day to myself to gather my thoughts and catch up.

If it’s preplanned day to get your head together, that’s annual leave.
If it’s a crisis one morning that you cannot get out of bed etx, that’s sick leave.

I’ve taken both

Thank you Katy.

I feel like it could be a combination of the two. Being a teacher, I can’t book leave or I definitely would.

If I said I had a headache I wouldn’t be lying!

Thanks again flowers

At work today I was in floods of tears as I just feel so “done”.

Note to self: in future take the day off 🙄
