The more people who do this, the more acceptable it becomes. You’re promoting a healthier work life for others, so if nothing else feel good about that.

Am i wrong for this

No. Company’s should provide their employees with mental health days in addition to sick days. Or allow sick days to be taken for mental health.

Nope not wrong. Big fan of mental health days

No, I completely and fully support it! Enjoy the rest of your day 😌

this is great! i struggle with doing this because i just know each sick day means a big snowball of tasks when I come back :/ it’s a give and take because I know I can’t even check off my to do list when Im in a low mental functionIng state

These are what you’re days are for. Use them.

I don’t understand how the medical system is on the brink of collapse right now. Maybe I have a skewed view of Omicron based on anecdotal experience?
