Heading back to work after mastitis
After 8 blissful months of healthy breasts I am now home with my first bout of mastitis. Man it is awful, I see what the other posts here mean about how painful and achy flu-like it is. But while at home, versus the office, I'm finding myself distracted with thoughts that I should be doing the laundry and cleaning as opposed to resting. But it's mid-morning and I've already taken a 2 hour nap. This is day two of the illness and I've started antibiotics so am starting to feel human again.
Anyone else been through this? I'm wondering how much to expect from myself when I head back to work tomorrow. I work about a half hour from home in a large financial service's Internal Audit department, so lots of screen time, heavy thinking/analysis, and meetings.
