1. I get sick a lot. And by a lot, I mean I’ve already had four colds that were so severe I could barely function this year.

    I was also never the one to miss work or school because of it. In fact, 95% of the time I missed work from being sick, it was because I was ordered to leave by a manager for being too sick. That has changed a little bit at this job, but only because now I have the capability to work from home. So when I call in sick, I’m still working. Unfortunately, this seems to have become a worse issue, as now, I don’t recover as quickly as I used to, because instead of resting at home I’m working. I’ll have to figure out a balance for that.

    • I’m trying my hardest to stop working from home, so I’m running into this issue for separate reasons. That said, I think that I’d work from home even if I was sick. I just so happened to not have my computer with me when I got pneumonia, otherwise I think I would have tried working the two days I was ill. I still did what I could from my computer, as there were things only I could do that needed done, however my computer doesn’t have a lot of programs I need for work. What normally would have taken 15-20 minutes on my work computer took over an hour from my computer.
