Well you're either exceptionally lucky with your health or you're one of those annoying people who come into work with colds and stomach bugs and give them to everyone else. It really annoys me when people get smug about how little sick leave they've taken. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have great health.

My doctor refuses point blank to put the nature of your illness on a cert for work. As far as he's concerned its none of the employer's business.

Your doctor should put it on the cert if you tell them to. Who do they think they are?
