  • Sick

    I am super excited, I started at my department this week. But, my second day through pre-academy training I got really sick. I hardly ever get sick, but when I do it always seems to be bad. So, there I am laying in bed really early in the morning (long commute) after a $h!ty nights sleep, sweating from a fever, trying to decided if I could live with myself calling in sick my first week of work. I decide that I can't, so I load up on DayQuil and muscle through it. I made it to the weekend, but I hope that I can gain back some strength. Just needed to vent, thanks.

      Way to push through it. First day of the academy for me I was sick as a dog but I'm sure the nerves didn't help either. Best then you can do is push through it!

        The first day I started FTO, I had a terrible headache (possibly migraine), and I threw up about an hour into the shift. I didn't feel that nervous, but I'm sure I was. My FTO called my sergeant while I was in the bathroom, and when he came out, he said I could go home if I wanted to. I opted to stick it out, but I ended up throwing up again about 2 hours later. By that time I figured I wasn't doing anyone any good, so I just went home. My FTO got teased more than I did. Everyone joked about him scaring me away, but they all knew I stuck it out for a while before going home.

        I did find out later that night that our milk had expired the day before we bought it (and it was 7 Eleven milk). My husband came home sick from work too, so it's possible we had some kind of food poisoning...

          We used to have a guy that would call in if he had a sniffle and screw the rest of us over. Don't be that guy. Sometimes you just have to muscle your way through it like you did.

          I've got a bad lower back that I have problems with at least once a month. A big bottle of Excedrine back and body in the car is about all I can do about it.
          Sometimes, doing the right thing means p***ing off the bosses.
