Thankfully, I can't remember the last time I was sick.  I make sure to get plenty of R&R and spend a lot of time in nature, so I do pretty well at avoiding burn out along the way

Unfortunately this business doesn't lend itself to taking time off for sick days. I'm taking more ME time these days when I know I'm going to have a slow day. I'll ride my bike to the beach or enjoy a movie. Relaxing helps keep me well. Stress kills!

When you work for yourself it's counterproductive to be sick so as long as these 2 legs can carry me you'll find me at work. When I worked for corporate, yes, I called in sick sometimes when I needed the day.

short answer... generally "yes" I take a break ...

... life is too short to not take needed breaks.... and to not listen to your body can make your life even shorter and much less happy... as they say.. you can't take it with you.

Sometimes you have no choice.

Taking care of yourself is very important, I do not believe that it is right to take a bag of medication and painkillers instead of a good nap and a cup of a chicken soup( if it is your thing).

Rarely, if ever.  I worked through chemo and 6 surgeries.  I was at an appointment with a seller 3 days after breast surgery.  Unless I down and cannot get up ... I do what needs to be done. 
That said, I am equally committed to taking good care of myself so that I do not get sick, and I rarely do.

Well I missed this earlier today - depends on how under the weather I am. I was back at work hours after my apendectomy and my thyroidectomy. I'm not good at taking time when I probably should. But when ill with a cold or something else contagious, I steer clear of others. Thankfully it's rare!
