I have tonsilitus and haven't been able to go to work. I've had two days of horrific fever. It hurts my skin to touch anything. The first day of fever was HORRIFIC and I just thought I would die.
We are totally understaffed at work and I knew that they would be screwed if I got sick, but I can't exactly go to work when I'm dying. The doctor said today I can't work for 48 hours. I felt totally horrible about calling in sick. When I talked to my boss she made me feel less bad about it.
