When I’m feeling sick and I’m working from home, it’s hard to make the decision to call out of work. I was raised to never call out unless I’m basically a corpse, and so I always feel guilty whenever I do call out. However, I’ve been working on being kinder to myself, and a part of that is recognizing when it’s time to rest. I’ve decided that if I’m feeling bad enough that I would be miserable in the office, I should let myself call out when I’m working from home. It’s good to let myself rest.
