Taking a sick day

I decided to take a sick day today, because my throat is feeling icky.  I don't know about you, but I always feel incredibly guilty taking the day off when I am sick.  Even though I really am sick, I feel like people probably assume I am not (especially since it is a Friday).  

It is best that I stay home, so I don't get the kids sick and so I feel better to teach next week right?  That's what I keep telling myself even though I feel guilty.

  • Do not feel guilty at all. I used to feel like that but it is best for everyone. Sometimes you just need a day to relax as well.

  • Can't say I ever feel guilty for staying home even when I stay home when I'm not sick.  The way I see it, to my employer I'm just a number and can be replaced any time they want.

  • I only feel guilty if its a busy day at work. I work in Payroll and 5 days out of our 10 day pay period are quite busy and the other 5 days are fairly slow. It works out well though. Its like my body knows not to get sick on the 5 busy work days and only gets sick once were slow again.

    I find sick days boring .... laying on the couch watching day time television. I always feel like because I am at home I should be doing something productive like cleaning or organizing but because I am sick I can't.

  • Thanks, I feel less guilty ;)

    Besides, my being absent for the day gives someone else a paid day of work so I don't feel that bad.

    Another thing you could do is make up mixes of stuff, like cookies and muffins and put it in jars with nice ribbons.  Looks nice and its cheap!
