I just started a new position as LPN head nurse in an Alzheimer's home and love it. I never thought I would be able to say that about any job but finally, God has blessed me with a job I truly do enjoy.
Anyway, I went into work this morning at 6:30am and as the day progressed, I started feeling awful. Headache, neck pain, chills and sweating at the same time but no fever. Nurse manager looks at me and says "You look terrible" so she sent me home. I have no insurance right now and money is tight, so I told her I have some left over Levaquin and nebulizer treatments from January when I had pneumonia.
I felt so stupid after I left because I kept saying "I don't want to lose my job" and "I love it here so please don't think this is stress related" blah, blah, blah...I basically groveled
Seems like almost everytime I have started a new job I get sick shortly after. Sometimes it IS
stress related but not this time. The weather is all over the place here and lots of folks are getting sick. Cold and drizzly one day, hot the next, windy and raining the next...
So does this getting sick after starting a new job thing happen to anyone else? Or is it just me
