Having sick time justifies my health care...

I have paid sick days. I usually use them for my son, but I currently use the time to go to my prenatal appointments. Since doctor's offices keep banker's hours, I have to take time off of work to get adequate care.

I am fortunate that a few hours here and there wouldn't break me, but being able to HAVE THE RIGHT to take the time is very important. It allows me to be justified in taking time off for appointments and for illness.

It's very sad that a person cannot just be sick, that it must be further justified by having earned the sick time, but that's the way it is.
