Thank you guys. I know ideally I shouldn’t be in work but I guess I feel like maybe if I’m distracted and busy I won’t notice it so much and I know I’ve got time off from monday as I’m off to Cyprus. Managed to swap so I’ve had a quiet afternoon and only seen 2 people and will go off home shortly now.
@Paula & Clare. Thank you for the hugs. I guess I want to go to work because my boss will give me time off if I need to just go last minute, I love what I do and I think of the patients and how they’ve waited X amount of weeks to see me. But I know I need to be sensible and not overdo.
@ Karen. Got one of the nurses to check my urine but looks okay. I know I should go home. I’ve got half day tomoz and friday and I’ve made my boss aware so if it gets any worse she knows I won’t come in. Shes got a hernia from coughing so we’re all falling apart. ps - you’ve promoted me to Dr status - thanks ;-)! Though the amount I’ve studied I could have done medecine but wouldn’t swap my job for the world.
@Poll thank you for the thoughts Can’t take credit I’m not a doctor just an allied health professional.
@Tabitha - yep tubes a nightmare - specially standing in the heat. At least if I get a seat I can sit and its bareable. Hence I’m glad I’m on holiday come sunday with the olympics. It sounds like you’re trying to struggle through like me. I hate giving up and going to work is my sanity. I love it and feel completely stir crazy if at home sick for a few days. Gentle hug back to you too (your ribs sound like my abdomen).
@Jen (good to see you around again :-)) I know I have been battling the last month. I’m on holiday from sunday so I guess I’ve been trying to keep going knowing that I do have a break coming up and even though my boss is great you just never know in the current finanacial climate.
Really really appreciate all your guys comments. You’re right I should take time off I’m not great - I guess admitting that its all getting to me is difficult. Off home now and will see how I feel tomorrow and if I should be in at all.
