First let me fall sick. Hehe. I always pray to God that I have to experience fever. Hehe. Ya. I have never had that. Once when I was doing my 4th grade, just drank so many salt water and had some problem because of that. I was admitted in hospital for a week. I just loved that. Hehe. I was never in bed. I was always roaming with the nurses in the hospital. I was just playing with them. Hehe. It may not be possible at this age. So better to be at home. Hehe.

Its not only afraid of me but of my whole family. When our body temperature is high, we will say everyone that we got fever. They will just shout at us saying that its just body temperature. Hehe.

If I am sick I would like to stay in the house if it is possible but there is kind of sickness that we cannot prohibited not to go to the Hospital but if I am a little bit fine then I could continues my medication in the house or at home then for sure I would like to choose that way too.......

yeah.. you right as long as the sickness can be cured at home so we would be better at home rather than staying a t hospital.. cause it might be also harmful for us staying in a hospital due to some diseases in a hospital.

Hi jersey. I never had a illness that needed me to stay in a hospital. Thanks God! but I think that stay at home is better because you can stay with your love ones and can read or watch TV on the canal you want LOL. Once I visit one friend of mine that was in hospital and I remember that I thought "what a bore". The TV stay only at one canal that show a miscellany without sound. And the TV was high in the wall so we can't change it. And the smell? all the bedroom had a hospital smell it means like a bottle of disinfectant LOL. If I would have choice I never would stay in a hospital.

definitely that depends on how sick you are or i should say the severity of your condition, if it needs further treatment or not. but with the example that you have had, which is fever, it might be just an ordinary fever but let it be known that fever is just a symptom of any underlying infection or disease process. so be aware to seek consultation if needed but don't wait for your condition to get worse before you seek one, eyt?

In my whole 27 years, I think I've been admitted to the hospital for more than 5 times. Hmmmm, I'm not really a "sickly" person, it's just that I'm prone to accidents. I got my jaw slashed when I was 5, I was hit by a jeepney when I was 8, I fainted when I got dysmenorrhea/menstruation problems when I was 13. But I guess I do have a weak digestion system as well for I remembered myself being rushed to the hospital for gastroenteritis and amoebiasis. Shucks! I hate to be confined in the hospital! I felt like a prisoner subjected to the doctors' and nurses' whims! and that dextrose! I'm never afraid of needles, but the discomfort of a dextrose is just intolerable for me, it was so irritating I always wanted to go home! Sigh, I would want just to stay home whenever I'm sick, good that I don't really need to be confined in the hospital when I have a fever, cough or cold, I can just stay home and take a rest...

Good day... It depends on my illness, if it is just minor like flu, cough and colds, mild diarrhea, mild headache and as long I can eat and drink, I'll stay home and clear it out. But when it is much worse than that and I lost my appetite or keep vomiting I must take my recuperation in a hospital because I think I need an IV line to heal.

Depends on the illness. If it is just a little fever, cold or the like i just stay at home. I don't like to be confined in a hospital but there are serious illness that requires us to be confined to a hospital. So, i guess we have to stay healthy to avoid being brought to hospitals.
