So, I was feeling slightly better. So, I took DayQuil. I was well enough that had I been working I would have still hauled myself in to the office.
Or so I thought.
I went out to get coffee, came back, and... went back to bed. I think if my livelihood were on the line I could somehow make myself stay up. When the kids were young, I would function as a mom no matter how weak and sick I was (up to and including having pneumonia).
But neither of those is the case anymore. Better to give my body the chance to recover.
