Rather than a post this is a few questions for people with chronic health problems. When you are ill, and out of the office do you do any of the following:
1. Put an out of office note on your email / phone system explaining that you are not in the office? Do you say that this is beacuse of illness?
2. Tell people other than your immediate supervisors that you are off because of illness?
3. Keep in touch with the office while you are off ill?
4. How do you deal with any ‘grumblings’ from your colleagues about having time off?
