Okay, so barring a whole blog entry about the state of Sweden's socialized health care and the critical importance of mental health days and the disparity between Swedish vacation/sick time versus the U.S., let's just say: People, sometimes a person just has to take a day off to get away from exhausting co-workers and stress and deadlines and just lay in bed with a cat all damned day without so much as showering even when a person might not be SICK AT ALL. Insurance companies can bite my stressed out sick-time allotted behind.
Ahem, not that I've ever even thought of doing that and I swear that every single time I called in sick, I was 100 percent certified knocking-on-death's-door sick. Death's door. Yeah, that's the ticket.
