but by being sick and working double shift you're actually indirectly telling him that you're oh so better than him when it comes to how much you can suffer and how hardworking you really are when he's just looking for some company and your presence.. had this thought ever crossed your mind?
The biggest FML I'm seeing here is that the OP apparently felt they *had* to work double shifts 2 days straight while sick. That's horrible and probably says a lot about where the OP works. As for the boyfriend: yeah, it sucks being sick and stuck home alone. Take your meds, take a nap, get over yourself, and get better.
I had the flu and bronchitis, but couldn’t provide a doctor’s note, so I had to work a 14 hour day (in the food industry, mind you). I was so sick, the floor was moving. Luckily, I was the highest ranked person there at the time, and my coworkers understood, so I just sat there and didn’t do anything.
Take it as a ham-fisted attempt to tell you to take better care of yourself. You deserve to get rest when you're sick, especially after a double shift. Next time, take your sick day, lie in bed with your computer and have your boyfriend serve you soup and tissues. I'm sure he will love that; he's so sensitive.
