...a cold??

I feel like utter shit. Completely blocked up, headache etc. The thought of sitting at a computer all day tomorrow feels me with dread. I just want to spend the day in bed and sleep it off.
But it is just a stonking cold so sounds pathetic to ring in sick for?

Colds can vary from mild to severe, it's not a silly reason to take a day off ill at all.
Staring at a computer screen all day with a headache and that odd physically heavy feeling head but whilst being lightheaded is not going to be fun. Take the day, take regular doses of medicine, get a good sleep and i hope you feel better soon flowers

if you feel that bad with it, then take the day off, but see how you are in the morning first.

I'm off sick at the moment, with a cold. So yes, I'd phone in sick! I'm currently sitting in a cool room sweating like a pig. I work in a café, and I'm pretty sure the customers wouldn't appreciate me coughing every five seconds. envy

It sounds like it could be sinusitis which had me rendered completely incapable for several days last year. Felt like a total wuss for not going to work but I simply could not have sat in front of a computer screen let alone been productive in anyway.
