Feel insane amounts of guilt about taking sick days? I HATE taking them. I hate it. I'd rather drag myself to work and be miserable than be home because of the all-consuming guilt. However, I'm under strict instructions to take today (and possibly tomorrow) as sick days. I'm supposed to rest and hydrate and sleep and go to the doctor.

Meanwhile, I've been awake since 5 am and have been unable to do anything except feel sick and grouchy about being home. I think I have a problem. Is this an American thing, a capitalism thing, or an "EleanorAquitaine has issues when not working a thousand hours a week" thing?

Incidentally, this gif came up when I was searching for "sick day gifs"
