Do You Work When You’re Sick?

Well, it’s Monday morning and I’m sick.  It’s nothing contagious or too bad, just a sinus infection, but I’m dragging compared to my normal, chipper morning self.  To add to the happiness, I am leading orientation for our new hires so I need to be on my “A” game all day.  Now, if you’ve got something contagious or a fever, the right answer is to stay home and keep all your germs to yourself.  I’m not in that boat.

I’ve taken my Day-Quil and packed my Kleenex.  I’ll make sure to drink plenty of water.

So, do you ever go to work when you’re sick?  What tips and tricks do you have to make yourself feel better when you have a situation where you really need to be somewhere when you’re under the weather? Share them with me in the comments so I can get from the B-game feeling I have back to my A-game.
