I cannot get sick now, I forbid it
I'm feeling like death today. Head and gut competing to see who can feel worse, and my eyes hurt and feel gritty. I've been up since this morning, hoping to medicate into functionality but it isn't working. I'm really hoping it is just a combination of stress, sleep deprivation, and the onset of allergy season doing a triple whammy on me, because I really, really can't afford to get sick now with the workload we have. I *must* be in tomorrow for the next round of interviews, come hell or high water. Just thinking about the work I'm not getting done today is stressful. I'm going to attempt to rest and hope my body deals with itself, because I'm going to have to make up the lost time in the next few days or fall farther behind.

Stay home. DO NOT KILL YOURSELF TO GET TO WORK.

Did you read that? Did you get it?

So help me god, I WILL drive to Worcester and sit on you to force you to stay home, if I have to! And you will NOT like it.

Due to a combination of reorganization, outsourcing, major equipment and infrastructure meltdowns and layoffs I now have more work than I (or anyone else in my dept) can get done, even working on stuff on weekends. Management no longer expects routine or even relatively important stuff to get done, they are only concerned with 'oh my gawd!' emergency type stuff. That said, my day consists of trying to accomplish one major goal per day, and if anything else gets done it's a bonus. I fully understand the term 'crushing work load', and I sympathise. I also rarely get stressed. I figure I can't get it all done anyway, so I pick my battles and celebrate those victories. I leave the war up to the generals. So don't kill yourself, there will be just as much (and probably more) work tomorrow no matter how much you do today. :)

I think the problem is I'm a perfectionist and something of a control freak - though working on the latter. :-) I'm also Director of IT Operations, so the buck stops here. There is a bunch of stuff that needs to get done and I can't not think about it all the time.
