I called off work for the first time in 7 months and I feel guilty :(

My shoulder hurts so bad I can barely get my shirt on or brush my teeth.
Then it was worth calling off. One time in 7 months is perfectly acceptable. Just take care of yourself.

No, you were right....if it bothers you that much, you’d be thinking about the pain and not about work.
Now that you’re not going to work, just relax and don’t try to do too much.
Hope you feel better soon. 🤗
SW User
[@475592,Dragon56] Awwww. Thank you! 🤗

You need to get it checked out, don't feel guilty.
Hope it stops hurting soon
SW User
[@2144,Justmerae] Not too much really. Just prescribed some ointment that my insurance doesn't want to cover.
SW User
[@353941,Meowsolini] That sucks
Have you tried bio freeze?
SW User
[@2144,Justmerae] No. Does it work well?

Ouch! Sorry to hear it. Don’t feel guilty, you needed the day.
SW User
[@248232,76starships] Thanks! I just hate sitting here not being productive.
76starships · 41-45, M
Understood. It’s hard to slow down when you are used to being so productive. Even when you’re hurting. [@353941,Meowsolini]
SW User
[@248232,76starships] Yes. It really is!

What'd you do to it?
SW User
[@812868,kingfish27] No. Just incredibly painful and I cannot sleep at all.

[@353941,Meowsolini] That sucks.
SW User
[@812868,kingfish27] Oh yeah. I had no idea!

You did the right thing. Take care of yourself!
SW User
[@68716,JoyfulSilence] Thank you. I am going to urgent care today. I don't want to call off again, but may have to.
JoyfulSilence · 46-50, M
[@353941,Meowsolini] Don't worry about it. Focus on getting better.
