Is this a bit harsh or am I being over-sensitive?

I was off work yesterday because I haven't been able to get up - I have a killer headache. You know that feeling you get after you bang your head? I have that non stop. Painkillers aren't working. The doctor said it was sinusitis. But my dad who is also a doctor doesn't think it is. I've been sick a few times as well. I have no appetite and my sleep has been very broken.

So yesterday my mum called in work for me to explain the situation and say I couldn't come in. Okay. Done. Today is my day off and I don't think I'm going to be well enough to go in tomorrow. My dad calls in to explain this (he's a Dr and I thought he'd be better at explaining) but my boss asks to speak to me. She then has a go at me saying that I have to call in before 9 and explain why, saying that it's just common sense (she says this in a really harsh way) I then explain how I've been feeling and she's like...call before 9 tomorrow to let us know if you're coming in, Urmmm....what?! Yesterday my mum was told to call today.


Sometimes people really piss me off.

Your boss sounds a bit ratty. Maybe he/she is just having a bad week.
I wouldn't dwell on it much.

Maybe you're coming down with the flu or some kind of bug?

Get well soon. xx:)

aww poor you, that is reason to be ill, you are ill. I sometimes get migraines and then i feel bad being ill with a 'headache'. if you can't go to work, don't feel bad for it, focus of being better again. Hope u haven't got flu
your boss seems a bit of a stresshead!

I don't think you're being overly-sensitive at all. It sounds like your boss is just disorganized or didn't understand or something.

Feel better, darling.

Wishing you well,
NOS

It sounds like you don't have a very supportive workplace. I am sorry to hear this. I hope you're okay. I feel sick myself at the moment too and I have a toothache that is killing me. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that you're not along [in feeling crap] but I am sorry you have to deal with shitty bosses.
*hugs*

I hope you are feeling better now.
Workplaces are not very supportive these days. All they care about is the money. They are just using us. One time, I was sick and they still made me work.
..I hope you feel okay soon.


LOVE!

Sorry to hear your boss is not sympathetic. It is too bad you are sick and have to worry about your job at the same time. Hopefully you will feel better soon!

Aw I'm sorry/: I been getting headaches lately too.. but for different reasons. I don't think you're being over sensitive, just pay attention to how serious they are. But hopefully they will go away soon(:
