I've been fighting a cold for almost 2 weeks and I hope I'm at the tail end of it. I've just felt so wiped out the past couple of days... achy all over, weak, lethargic, difficulty focusing. Also when I'm feeling physically under the weather, I tend to get really depressed, which obviously doesn't help. :rain

Yesterday, I went to work feeling like this, and I literally hid in my cubicle all day. I did about 1 hour of actual work over 8 hours. The rest of the time I just spaced out or mindlessly surfed the internet. I hardly talked to anyone. I didn't go and help out in the printing production room like I usually do when I get bored of my desk work or don't have enough to do. That's all unusual, even for me. I think people knew something was wrong and left me alone. Even the Big Boss, who enjoys pestering people for sport. It made me somewhat self-conscious and sheepish.... I dread going into work tomorrow, if I do... I hope they're not mad at me.

I wanted to go home, but I had carpooled with my wife. She had the car, and I didn't want to mess up her day to come and get me.

So, out of all of this, I have noticed sort of a cause-and-effect progression. Physically sick-------->Depressed--------->Self-isolation.

:hug I'm sure the people at work won't be mad at you. Everyone has days where they're not feeling well, or just want to be left alone.

I hope you feel better soon. :)

Thanks, Hannah and Lisa. :squeeze

I'm not feeling as depressed as I was this morning. Physically,.....eh. I hope I kick this thing soon. I definitely got it from work; something's going around bigtime. 'Tis the season!
