I haven’t been sick in a very long time. But I caught the cold over the weekend. B got sick and gave me his cold.  I was like “my immune system is on hyper alert.  I’ll be fine.”

I totally over estimated my own strength. I got super sick and have to miss 2 days off work. I feel super guilty for calling in sick even though I really shouldn’t. 

All rationale points to me staying at home is the best decision. I’m recovering, I won’t be infecting others, I’m creating healthy boundaries and putting my own health first. Yet, I feel guilty.

B says it’s because I’m finally behaving like a responsible adult with a sense of accountability. I call it trying to move away from being a doormat and having clear priorities.
