Contrast that with today: Now when I'm sick it's undesirable on multiple levels. First, I now have job responsibilities I'm missing. Second, I feel guilty for my sickness. Thirdly, hand in hand with my guilt, I feel obligated to check up on things, if not work from home. This is all to the detriment of my health but who wants to be perceived as a slacker?
In my most recent visit to the doctor he concluded that my dry, rough cough for the last month is most likely due to stress. Prescription: several meds, to lay off the sauce, drink many fluids...and actually rest.
The moral(s) of the story:
- Stay home as often as you can
- Lay off the sauce
- Try to enjoy as many cartoons as you can, especially since Soap Operas come on starting at Noon.
