An example: I’m sick today. I have a fever, a crazy sore throat and the energy equivalent to that of someone who just ran 100 miles (i.e. nothing at all). But I still feel like if I take the day completely off work, I’m not good enough. I’m not a good employee if I’m not working a couple of hours from my bed… My husband thinks I’m crazy, tells me that if I’m sick, well then I’m sick and I should stay in bed without working. He’s probably right. So why is it I still feel like I do? No matter how sick I am, I still feel like I’m somehow “cheating” – it’s insane…
