Meh, I have tonsillitis :(

Off work today but have to go back in tomorrow as there will be no one in the office otherwise. My mum, sister and brother in law have also got it. Looks like my neice might be on the verge of getting it too.

Im going to try and stick to the SW plan but appear to be struggling already. At least I still have my appertite (ish) still.

Hope you are all well x

If you have tonsillitis and are feeling ill tomorrow then you mustn't go in to work. It's THEIR problem if there's nobody in the office!!!!

Right, out of nagging-mum mode now.

Hope you feel better soon xxxxxxxx

Thanks Suepat, I know I should stay at home tomorrow but I the doctors who I work for wouldnt be able to organise themselves if I wasnt there lol.It would make it really awkward for the Inpatient Unit that I support too as they wouldnt be able to get in touch of anyone in case of an emergency. Think I will have to go in and just not do anything apart from answer the phone x
Excuse my ignorance, but is it contagious? If it is then you shouldn't be going anywhere near work! As Sue said, it's not your problem.

I do hope you feel better soon hun. x

Yeah it is contagious according to the NHS website and what with me working for an inpatient NHS unit I guess I shouldnt be going to work but I hate letting people down and putting people out. My other two colleagues who I work with have had tomorrow booked off for ages and it's typical that I have to be ill during that time eh!
I appreciate your dedication Sarah but if you give a load of patients and medical staff tonsillitis too, they will have more than let down and put out people to deal with! I would definitely try and get hold of your boss and explain that you and your family are all showing symptoms of tonsillitis and that you are the only person supposed to be working tomorrow. Worst case scenario they will have to get agency staff or call one of the others back from their booked leave, but YOU shouldnt be there!!
