I have been out sick off and on for 5 weeks. Virus, infection, caring for mom when she got sick. Today went to dentist while on a sick day for the ongoing asthma bronchitis relapse and wound up having two abcess molars extracted. First time in my life. Still doing the gauze changes every hour and applying ice. And, of course, mom is driving me crazy but wanting to help. Will my boss believe me? Is this crazy? Do people stay home for these kinds of things? Never had it before.
