I was home with some stomach bug on Monday and Tuesday. At first I thought I had food poisoning or I was having a reaction to a new medicine for cholesterol (Lovaza, a fish oil) but I was feverish and exhausted Sunday night. And I had stomach cramps and diaharrea. I did what I thought was the sensible thing and stayed home.
I had supervision today and was "coached" because I have too many occurrences in the past year. It doesn't show up in my employee record but if I'm sick one more time before next July, it will result in a written warning. And then I can't have any infractions for an entire year. It well and truly sucks. I told Pk that it doesn't matter how sick I am, I have to go to work all through the winter. If I pass along germs, then so be it. I still have 2 weeks of sick time on the books but that doesn't matter.
