Argh, I wish I had prolonged my starting date to about another month. How was I supposed to know I would get pneumonia a week before starting a new job?

It's not that the dev work is difficult and the deadlines are far off. Yesterday was my second day in the office and I passed out mid-day and woke up on the floor. Gave everyone quite the fright. Apparently, it'll take a few weeks to a month for my lungs to heal and air/blood flow to return to normal.

    Feel better soon. At least it's not coronavirus. 😌

    You shouldn't go to work with pneumonia even if it's your first day. Get a doctor's note, stay at home and give yourself some rest.
