WFH SICK

The world has become a very different place from what it was when I started working years ago.


I had a bad night for insomnia last night, wasn't able to sleep until 5am (although I know I had blacked out at some point for about an hour earlier in the evening) ... if I avoid caffeine during the afternoon, I inevitably end up without the crash that signals me that it's time for bed :P And of course if I have it too late in the day it keeps me awake too long. 4pm seems to be the optimal time.

Anyway when I woke up at 10am I was too groggy and also a bit queasy, so at 1pm I checked blood sugars, about 210 (have been steadily under 150 lately, so that's a relatively bad spike) and still shaking, so decided to work from home.

The fact that (1) my managers not only understand this but are not judgemental about it, and (2) that I am ABLE to work from home, without missing meetings (phone!) is just worlds of awesome.

I am very sympathetic with those folks for whom this is not a possibility.

I could not have survived without this ability.

I try to work from home about one day a week, usually Thursday, but I admit I still feel a bit odd doing it. It does take a bit of planning ahead, and I still occasionally have to ask somebody in the office to go over and kick a machine I'd been working with and crashed so badly I can't get back into it.

    I heard from a person I haven't talked with in a rather long time, and found this comment.

    Wow ow ow. That is ... so very earnestly foolish.

    I have wondered for years whether it is possible for an agency to independently become sociopathic, and I think I finally figured out that it is a…

    Interestingly, the other day I learned of another good reason I left.
