He's home safely now, but on top of this news, I was diagnosed with shingles today along with a self-diagnosed flu (Aches and running a low-grade fever). Since shingles is contagious, I have to get a doctor's note, bring it to work, and stay off work until things clear up. This can take 2-4 weeks.
I'm sorry, Pata. *hugs*

Good thing it's not contagious over internet hugs. I wouldn't want anyone getting this. It sucks already, and I still have around 2 weeks before it might be gone.

Sorry to hear that you are not well, pataflafla. I guess the best thing I can say is to just take it easy for the next couple of weeks.

I have a doctor's note to be off until the 22nd of this month, so I'm hoping they don't dump me. I'll at least have a good paycheck for the next 2 weeks already set up since I've got 40 hours on it already.

I'll probably check in a few days before I'm able to return to make sure I'm still expected to return and check the schedule.

Thanks for your concern Rosso. I'll be trying to take it easy for the next few weeks, but so far my boyfriend doesn't plan on letting me rest too much. He knows it's contagious, but doesn't care. I don't know whether to think it's sweet or clingy.

I'm probably just gonna write up a resume in the mean time just in case they do (This McDonald's is incredibly unprofessional). I might apply at a few vet offices so I can get more into the field where I plan to stay for the rest of my career life.

That would be great if you could work at a vet's office. You'd be perfect!

Well, I plan on at least vet tech for a career (I don't want to work with people so much).

I think I might want to specialize a little bit in aquatic veterinary practice as well since I know it's hard to find a vet to see aquatic pets.
