It used to be that when I called in sick, I would have the whole day to do whatever it took to feel better. I could sleep or eat soup or just withdraw from the rush of urgent deadlines and sudden crises.
Nowadays I donít even make the call. I did talk to the Boss briefly this morning, but he didnít ask me why I sounded so bad. Maybe he thinks thatís the way I sound on Monday morning. In fact, come to think of it, heís probably right. If thatís what he thinks. Or maybe he just doesnít care.
Anyway, I have the same symptoms as yesterday, plus chills down to my bones. Iím no better but no worse, and Iím in full hibernation mode. I donít much want to talk to anyone or do anything. I move around as little as possible, and I didnít eat much of anything all day. Thatís probably not the way to get better, but itís all I feel like.
