How I feel about it all: nauseatednauseated
Tags:
Ick. Woke up nauseated and it's not going away. I'm torn between going to work and hoping for the best, and calling out. Problem is, they're already not happy with me because of something else, and I know I'm going to get (at the very least) a lecture about it today, and I don't want them to think I'm copping out to avoid said lecture. However, if I go in feeling like shit, then I'm not going to be at my best when I have to deal with them. I also don't have a full shift of sick time.

I'd make a poll about it, but I feel too icky.

Call in & say that you'll come in to talk about whatever-it-is, but then you need to go home if you aren't feeling better?

I'm not sure that I'll even have to talk about it. She might say nothing. I doubt it, but. I'd rather not make waves.

I think I'll go in, because I might as well face the muzak. :/

Where oh where have you been?

I was off all weekend. I was at songdog's house on Sat., but I was around last night.

I was online from about 7:30 until 10:30 or so last night, and you weren't. :P Then I made myself actually go to bed at a decent hour.

Can you call in sick, but also acknowledge that you know that you need to talk to the PTB's about whatever it is that they're going to talk to you about?

I've always taughtat schools where the philosophy has been, "If you're sick, then stay home and get healthy first -- things will still be here (for better or worse) when you get back."

*sends healing vibes*

There's no official plan to talk to me--I just know these guys. But I don't want to put the idea in their head, either. I think I'll go in and then go home if I have to. I'm feeling a little better, anyway. Not much, but a little.

I wondered if maybe it was worrying about the talk that was making you feel icky in the first place. God knows I've managed to make myself physically ill stressing about work things--I actually had to quit a job once because of psychosomatic illness. (Yes I have issues, shuddup).

At any rate, I hope you're feeling better, and I hope the talk went all right, if they had it at all (which I'd rather they didn't. ;) )

There wasn't much of a talk. It's all gonna be fine. I still feel icky, but I still feel employed.
