I'm taking a sick day today. I always feel some guilt whenever I call in sick. I could be losing blood from a major artery and I'd still feel guilt. Maybe it's not guilt so much but empathy for my coworker(s) who will have to work that much harder in my absence.

I think sleeping with only a sheet and the fan on high all night long is probably part of the reason I'm feeling like crap.

I understand your guilt. I think it took a horrible workplace to finally think, "It's okay to call in sick!" (Especially on Super Bowl Sunday!)
I had a sup. who told me the shop didn't need me to exist. That helped put it into perspective. And sometimes it's okay for other people to have to work hard!
