Is Work FOMO a Thing?

I came downstairs at around 2:00 this morning, tried to sleep on the couch, but sleep never found me. So here I am with my coffee, and my soda, and my phone. I’ve already had my breakfast. It’s 3:30.

I’m going to be fun to deal with today.

If I have to do the carpal tunnel surgery, I could be out of work for weeks. Worker’s comp only pays out half your earnings. I don’t want to tell you how little that is for me.

Besides that, I don’t want to be out of work. I like things the way they are right now. What happens if I come back and it’s different? What if the people I know are gone and replaced by new people? That would hardcore suck.

It’s amazing, what can happen in only a few weeks. Just look at the CDC when I came back from maternity. It was an entirely different place and I was totally blindsided.

Usually I’m pretty flexible and able to roll with change. But for some reason…I don’t know. This particular group of people have, consciously or otherwise, done an excellent job of making me feel accepted and appreciated, and, selfishly, I suppose, I would hate to have that disrupted.

Just saying.
