So. I've been sick... on and off since Christmas. I've gone through 2 rounds of antibiotics, and have finally gotten through the low-grade fever and the sinus/strep symptoms for the most part. But here's the kicker. I go into work... and people who *know* me, act normal and like they understand... it happens. Nothing going on.

Then there's my own team. They won't even hardly look at me. I think they think I'm lying. OMG. OH MY GOD. Really. Don't get me wrong... there is a part of me that would like nothing less than to do whatever they are suggesting, but I am not like that.

I've had several references written for me lately and some (Ok, a few, 3 out of 14) of them make mention of my "Integrity", which means the following:

Integrity: noun 1. adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.

Seriously people, I don't make up crap to get out of work. The fun times we've had since Christmas:
1. I got a cold then sinus infection.
2. Lil M got a cold, then strep AND a sinus infection (was going around her daycare).
3. I got Lil M's cold and sinus infection AND strep. UGH

Being treated like a liar is just the PITS. I mean, that's a slam on my person. And totally unacceptable.

I do, however, thank God for taking care of me and my daughter. This will pass (sooner rather than later).



  1. Sorry to hear the garbage from your work. It is just a horrible feeling when you are in this situation and you know people think you are lying. I don't think there is anything you can say to alter what they are thinking. Some people just seem to enjoy thinking the worst of others, as if it therefore elevates them and makes them superior.

    Just trust that the people who know you best (and who are the people who are therefore most important too you) will know the truth. A lot of folk in this world have nothing better to do than gossip about others.

    Hope you and the wee one are both now on the road to recovery.

  2. boy do I hear you. When will you start your new job? I hope soon. Get better. Lovely post on the Psalms.
