My T and P-doc and I are considering a readmission to RO this fall which would mean using three weeks of my vacation time. I don't have STD that would cover my time off from work so that is why I will have to use vacation time. I am trying to develop a plausible reason to tell my board, my direct reports and the other employees as to why I would be unplugged (reality inpatient without access to email and cellphones) Has anyone here taken time off from work stated as vacation but was actually inpatient admission in a trauma program. I can't risk anyone discovering where I would really be as it would have substantial impact on my job. I have been sort of laying the foundation talking about a three week digital detox retreat with no computers, phones locked up and activities like meditation and yoga etc.
