Hi!

I am currently 17 weeks pregnant and dealing with a cold and sinus infection. I have NEVER called in sick to work in my whole career... but this time I debating calling in sick.

What do ya'll think about working while sick? I feel like there is so much pressure to work and if we don't, we feel so guilty.

If I were a patient, I probably wouldn't want to see "me" as their nurse with a tissue constantly stuck up their nose. I suppose if I could actually take a good decongestant I might be able to push through.

Thanks!

Don't come to work if you're sick
