So this is only my 3rd year teaching but I have managed to get sick at least once each year. This year it was only 2 weeks in! Went to urgent care and was told I had bronchitis and ear infection. Was given lots of medicine and told to stay home tomorrow. I thought about going anyway because I didn't feel so terrible but now its 4AM and I cant sleep and I ache all over. So glad I got a sub. I hope this doesn't set a trend for the year. I'm not really out much (about 2 days a year) but I feel mega guilty for missing already. I know this sounds odd but it did make me feel better to see 2 other teachers at the doctor I was at with about the same thing. At least I wont be the only one calling in already. I guess there will be lots of hand sanitizer in my future. Although I already compulsively wash my hands during the day.
