It’s that time of year when you can walk through any public location and be bombarded with coughs, sneezes, and flu bugs. Ewww! Being sick is no fun, and it can definitely disrupt your life. Not to mention, being sick is expensive.
Aside from the obvious monetary cost associated with doctors, prescriptions, over-the-counter meds, time away from work, etc., being sick can also cost you on the personal side of the house. I know this, because I am a mama. I am the childcare provider, personal assistant, house cleaner, shopper, chef, driver, laundry operator, accountant, tutor….and Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy. Sick time to me not only means those medically associated costs, the time away from work, but it means that my home and general life do not function and are put on hold. When mama’s sick….well, you know where I am going with this.
