I had my husband call in sick for me this morning. I don't know if this is a horrible thing to do or not, but yesterday was just a really awful day for me and I was so depressed last night. I just need to recoup myself and calm down and refocus. I mean, it's just one day right? I doubt my kids will fall too far behind. And it's not like they care anyways... I'm learning that maybe I don't handle stress as well as I thought - I think way too much about everything and when lots of details pile up, I eventually just shut down and can't do anything. I think that's what happened to me last night/this morning. I guess I'm just posting this to seek approval from someone. Is it ok that I called in "sick" today? Am I weak for having done that? Or is it better that I didn't try to go in and have a real breakdown?
