I'd really like to stay home today. Mr. Asthma doesn't like these temps, and nobody likes wind chills of -50F. But I don't dare call in or ask to work at home. It's such a vindictive place. I just don't feel secure enough and I don't want them to know about Mr. Asthma. Companies are so prejudiced against people with conditions. I wish I didn't feel so afraid all of the time. I remember when I didn't. But that's when I had friends and love ones. And a job where I felt valued.
