Does anyone else suffer day off guilt? Im just waiting to phone in sick- a miscarriage last month has left me really drained and I now have a Uti, an ear infection and I think I've got the lovely sickness bug that was doing the rounds. I'm in no state to tackle my class, but I just feel so guilty, like I should just tough it out for 2 more days. Tell me I'm not a terrible person?
You are definitely not a terrible person! You can only do so much and you have exceeded that. Go to bed and sleep. Your class will manage for two days. I'm a teacher and know all about the guilt. Be kind to yourself.
Thanks! I rang in at 8, then went back to sleep and just woke up. I had 1 day off with my miscarriage (I only work pt) and the last sick day I took was 2 years ago, so not too bad! Just need to get better. Left my laptop at work so I can't even catch up with work, probably a good thing!
