Sick and Treat
February 21, 2009 2:52pm CST
I feel very sick lately and I realised how important it is to have people around who love you and are willing to take care of you. Maybe I am too spoiled, but I love when people take care of me, like ask me how I feel, prepare hot tea and other medicine. What about you? Do you like to take care of others? Do you like when somebody takes care of you?

I am more spoiled than u......i am extreme in both ...i can die for the person i love and care....and also expect that he/she does the same for me...but its not that i force the other person, i take care that i be the same loving person for them so that they also belike that for me

it is nice to have someone who will take care of us when we are sick. someone who will remind us to drink our meds on time and someone who will see if our fever is still high. i have four teen kids and i am happy and proud to say that they do take care of me when i am not feeling well. they try their best to do all the chores and just make me lie down and take a rest. it is not a part of being spoiled on longing someone to take care of us when we dont feel good.... i think that is natural.

Hi soleya, When my hubby is ill I had to take of hime but when I am ill, I'm not allowed to be ill and sill have to do things and he is nowhere to be seen sometimes, as I don't have anyone round me I don't have anyone to take care of me. Tamara

I'm rarely sick, haven't been for years but I prefer people to leave me alone. I have no problem taking care of others but when I don't feel well I just want to retreat to my bed and sleep and be left alone. The last time I got sick I slept most of the time, getting up just to do necessary things and get some water. I get better faster if I'm left alone.

Hi soleya! Oh, I do hope you're feeling much better now somehow. I do love being taken care of when I am sick and sometimes, even when I am not. Sometimes, I faked it just to get my husband's attention. lol.. He knows I am faking it but he gives me Tender Loving care anyways. haha..Just love being pampered once in awhile and if I can be pampered all the time, who am I to say "NO" to that! Take care and get well soon! lovelots..faith

Sorry you are not feeling well but it sounds like you have people top take care of you. I've looked after people off and on all my life....husbands, children, boyfriends, Mum, Dad. No-one has looked after me since Mum did when I was little. Except for when I have been in hospital. I would like to be looked after sometimes when I'm ill but not always. If I'm ill these days I have to take care of myself and still have to look after the animals.
