Today, I’m calling in WELL, and I’m not coming in to work.

Twice in the last year while working in the hospital, I’ve called in sick when I’ve actually not been physically ill at all. These were times when I felt just unable to face the day ahead of me. I should have called in ‘fed up’, which is what I would venture many people really call in sick for, but it seems that no matter how much seniority you might have, this is not a category that becomes available to you.
