To not go to work today?

I've been off work for just over a week due to bipolar disorder/anxiety. I'm a contractor so I'm not paid while off sick but obviously it doesn't look good (though I don't go into what I'm ill with).

Today I planned to go back as I'm feeling a bit better however I tore/injured a ligament in my knee yesterday afternoon (due to an old injury and somehow twisting my knee sitting on the floor). It is very painful and I have not slept all night...not even a few seconds of sleep.

I'm now thinking it would be better to wait until tomorrow as sleep/bipolar disorder are closely linked and if I'm able to catch up on any sleep today I should do so to avoid possibly being ill later.

AIBU to not go in even though today I am not 'sick' per se?

But you are sick.

I've been up all night with a poorly knee too,I'm beyond tired.

I can't believe how much it hurts!

All I did was twist it slightly getting up from the floor...and I'm only 34, god knows what injuries I'll manage getting up in years to come!

If you're in pain then don't go - you know yourself better than anyone else.
