Hi,My name is Nancy and I am 40y/o from Chicago. My divorce was final last Wednesday. I have had low self-esteem issues most of my life. But I actually feel more confident since I am no longer with my ex. I also suffer from chronic anxiety and depression. Yesterday I called in sick because of alot of anxiety. The usual skills that help didn't this time. Now I feel guilty for calling in and I am worried that my co-workers are mad at me because lately I have called in sick more often. How do I just go to work with my head held high and not worry about what others think. I want to be able to feel better about this situation and not feel like a bad person because of it. I have even thought about talking to my boss today about calling in and that I will try to work on this problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for listening. Nancy
