OP, tell them you are sick and rest. The flight cost nothing compare to your per diem and worst case, your firm will cover it. Health and family come first.

Also consider that the client may not want you to attend the meeting if you are sick in case what you have is contagious. When communicating about something like this that is often the right thing to say "I am down with a viral fever and I would hate to get any others sick by attending this meeting."

Even when to doctor on Saturday and they told me it was viral.

In some countries (e.g., Nordics) it is a major taboo to go to work whilst sick. Herd immunity is taken seriously here. Don’t get other people sick. Spend your time getting healthy

I have a toxic ex that I can’t seem to get over. I’ve done therapy. I’ve tried to go on dates. I’ve joined a gym. But I keep going back to him and it’s just hurting me even more and making me hate myself.

I feel myself slowly but surely sinking into a major depressive episode 😞 I’m no longer on anti depressants since I’ve been taking a mood stabilizer. Not sure if I want to tell my psychiatrist about it, I really don’t want to get a higher dose or more meds, I just want it to be over.
