Sick leave

November 13th, 2007

I am completely unable to enjoy any time that I take off as sick leave.

Perhaps enjoy is the wrong word. You’re not supposed to be enjoying yourself; maybe ‘relax’ would be better. I am completely unable to relax when I’m off ill.

I spend my time sat at my computer, thinking that I should be completing those user profiles, or that proposal, but actually checking out the gadgets sites. Or surfing wikipedia.

Guilt is the inevitable consequence. Guilt that I should be getting on with something, or that I’m not quite ill enough to be at home.

A nap is the only way out, but even then, the price is a rubbish night’s sleep.
