Do you still go to office for work even you are not feeling well?

No matter how you are prepared for another days' work, there are times, you feel something that bothers you. That you dont feel well the moment you wake-up. That you will try to move and prepare your stuff for the office but still, your body is aching. Sometimes, that you try your best to be present in your workplace though you dont really feel well. And that you are trying to show to others that you choose to report for work eventhough there is something that bothers you. Thus, it may bring some consequence, you cannot work well and your mind does not cooperate with the things that you must accomplish. And you will just end up of partial accomplishment. To think it further, is it really worth to go for work and be present in your workplace though you dont feel well? Is it a justifiable reason not to go for work because you dont feel well?

No. Money earned n a day is worthless and useless if your health is at a risk. For me I would rather stay home in my beds comfort to rest.

Hi DenverLC, You are absolutely right. Money earned in a day is truly worthless if the health is a risk. And sometimes, you will spend more than what you will earn during that day. Due to some medicines you need to buy.

no at all dear if you know that you are not felling well to go and work in office it will lead to badly illness...doing work can cause more illness to you and your body so it's better to take rest for one day instead of taking leaves for more than week

Frankly speaking, i hope all the employees can work at home.In this way, you don't need to worry about feel well or not, you just finish your task before the deadline.

Fankly speaking, each day when i get up,i don't want to week but even i feel good. I prefer to work at home. Why most of the company wants people to work together?

Hi! For me I go to work if I still can make it and my work needs me so I have to go. But if my body really can't take it anymore I have to stay at home and rest so I'll be okay the next day!

hi, i think it depends on how really bad you feel whether or not to go to work, some times you wake up in the morning not feeling good but go to work and feel better, but if you don't feel good and you know that you can't perform good at work and get things done in a proficient manner than its better to stay home and recuperate because its just a waist of time and if your manager thinks your not performing well they may send you home anyway. and that's a lost day of pay either way
