It seems illness is quite rampant in my workplace. At least 2/3, if not more, have been sick. I have had to work while sick and I think it has really caught up with me. That is why I haven’t felt like writing this week. I had to work over most days and then by the time I got home I was just too tired to do anything except crawl in the bed and sleep until the last-minute before I had to go back to work. A few days this week I had to go in early. I got off this morning and came home and tried to pretend I was human and stay awake for a bit. I did for a little while but sleep overtook me. I have now been up for about 2 1/2 hours and I am ready to go BACK to bed. Hmmm…this is not looking too good. I am over the stomach bug that had me so sick but now I feel like a cold is setting in. Ugh!
Sorry to whine…it’s just so frustrating to try to work so hard and then get sick. I used Lysol® and hand sanitizer and washed my hands like crazy. Nothing seemed to help. I think when you work in shifts and occupy the same areas as other people it is bound to happen. It is so horrible, though. I do not like being sick. OK, enough about that. I’m taking my sick self to bed again. I guess if my body is trying to fall asleep as I type that maybe I should listen. And at least I don’t have to fight it tonight. I can actually GO TO SLEEP.
Hope the rest of you are well.
