Can I say I HATE BEING SICK???
I have a job that expects me to get certain things done by a certain time. I have four kids and a wife, all of which require some level or other of attention. I have writing to do.
None of these can be done well when my guts tie themselves in knots. And it doesn't help when the rest of the family gets it too.
I'm HOPING this will leave me by morning, because I **REALLY** can't afford ANOTHER day out of work, but OTOH it would be kinda useless to go to work and spend most of it in the company bathroom.
