Flu bug. Struggle in to the sinking ship or stay holed up with my germs kept to myself?

Am a TA and lunchtime supervisor. I have been off with the flu bug for 2 days.

Feeling lots better now, but still streaming and headachey. I know lots of staff and children are off at work.

So my question is, should I go in tomorrow? I think I could dose up on ibroprofen and manage - it's just 4 hours I do.

Stay at home until you are better.

Stay at home. It will take you longer to recover.

I am a childminder and have had to completely write this week off thanks to flu.

I literally cannot get out of bed though.

Stay home. Parents won't thank you if their children get ill over the coming holidays and it could pass the bug on to someone less resilient.

Flippin' horrible isn't it.

At school there are so many bugs, children sent in with temperatures and stomach aches, I sort of wonder if my germs make any difference.

I am feeling a bit worse this evening so it looks like another day at home tomorrow.

I also take the point about recovering, not sure what would happen if I felt like this for Christmas.

Thanks all.
