And now for guilt....

So, as all of you know, I have been sick. I stayed home again today from work. I did try and get up this morning and get ready. I about passed out. I believe it is from being so short of breath for 3 days. Anywho, so I called in AGAIN. First off, I just don't sit behind a desk all day and see no one. I am in front of a group of people talking my head off all day. So, with a frog in puberty voice, shortness of breath, severe coughing, I felt it best if I stayed home and recovered rather than pushing it to the limit and ending up in the hospital.

So now for the guilt... my boss called me this afternoon and left me a message. She has a husky man's voice now. NICE. So I feel bad that she has been at work and has probably been covering for me and is now getting sick. I am going back tomorrow. I do feel about 75% better. I can walk around without feeling faint, I can carry on an entire conversation without hacking up half of my lung and my voice is getting stronger. (for the record, I am a loud mouth... so my family has enjoyed this frog voice and no chance for yelling quite well).

Even though I knew it was best for me to stay home and recover, I feel so guilty about being gone from work. I wrote yesterday about feeling bad for not going trick or treating. (I don't feel bad about not cooking...can't win 'em all!) I feel bad for feeling bad... go figure.

It's great you are starting to get better. Don't feel guilty. Most of the time moms don't get "time off" even when they are sick. Stay in bed. Rest. Get better!!!

"a frog in puberty voice" Love it - very funny.

So much guilt you got there! YOu mommies can be so hard on yourselves. (I think the boss was faking it.)

Thanks for dropping (or dripping) by my blog.

Don't feel guilty, if you're sick, you're sick. Glad you're starting to feel better. Thank you for the comments.
