Different people's ways of dealing with being sick are fascinating to me. From the "I stubbed my toe. I can't do ANYTHING WOE IS ME" to the "I am bleeding from all my orifices and pores, but I WILL GO TO WORK" ethos.

I'm glad roomie's boyfriend is here to nursemaid, though, so I don't have to. I get (completely unfairly) frustrated with adults making people wait on them, if they can still stand.

Mine changed depending on the job. As a grad student, I took sick days easily since I had few deadlines and most of them were on the week or month or year scale. Now that I'm teaching, unless I'm throwing up, feverish or contagious*, I'm going to be in class because my students need me.

* My students don't need my germs.

So far I've gone to work literally reeling with fever and the day after (or same day!) as various different levels of dental or oral surgery, among other stunts ...

I think the only thing that's conclusively kept me out for a while was stones :3b *lol*
