I am sick for almost three days and I felt uncomfortable everyday while I am working. I am not in a good conditions. But because we have shortage of staff so I need to render my service even I am not feeling well. Until such time that I decided to have a 1 day sick leave because I'm so week in the office. Well, my Boss don't have any choice because of my situation. It's difficult to work if you are not in good condition. You mind want to lye on bed but you can't because you're on duty. I am relax today. Most of my time I spend it lying on bed and sleep. What about you fellow lotters? What you did when you are sick, are you sleeping the whole day or you do something else. I promise not to open my laptop but I can't resist it. I open and interact with my friends online who ask my situation today. Is it not good to used your PC when you are sick? If you have fever, what is the best medicine you take to relieve it. I drink alot of water today, eat more fruit. I also drink ginger and lemon tea. Do I need to drink supplement with more vitamin C content? By the way, the weather here is very cold. It reaches to the range of 8-10 degrees centigrade. Very cold so far and this is the first time I experience like this weather as I am newbie here in this place.

hi julyteen I am sorry to hear you have been ill. thats just not any fun at all. I agree rest is really part of making yourself well. if you have a fever aspirin or tylenol should help that. Just take a multivitamin pill and you will get enough vitamin C. also try eating hot chicken noodle soup as it will settle your tummy and make you feel better.Tomato soup is also good and as you said hot tea is great and ginger will really settle any tummy upset. It sounds like you know just what to do. Hope you feel well really soon.I often get on mylot when I am feeling ill. But I do try to keep away for a few hours to get some rest too.

In my village we are not using any multivitamin tablets, we use natural methods. In villages grand mothers and grand fathers are always advice when ever we are suffering with any problem. And When we are ill/sad majority of the villagers are come to talk and give some advice. Really that gives us half of the strength.

I mother(amma) always telling to me that, "don't sleep so much time even in the day, when we are sick in also, because it increases the problem, we have to start any interesting work, or to eat our likely food, and talk with friends... then we can relax". But Sick in situation is a so bad situation, while we are busy in our duties, we never thinks about this, but once we are ill, we have to arrested to bed only. In this family members help is unforgettable. Especially a housewife can serve as great to his family. ******

When I am sick I lost my appetite so I don't eat alot. I only drink juices and eat fruits. My body is weak so I prefer to sleep and watch TV than make anythings that need energy.

wow three days? you should have take a break or sick leave. just sleep after eating and taking the vitamins. probably drink calamansi juice to flush out the green stuff in you're lungs too since you are not sweating that much.

That was I did because no possibility for me to get sweat due to the weather here at that time around 13 degrees celcius. It was very hard for me because nobody will take care of you because all of my friends here also working day by day.

Sorry to hear that you are unwell. I think that your boss can't do anything when you're sick. When you're sick it is recommended that you take medicine and take rests, but not too much rest in my opinion. If your illness not gone, you'll need to visit doctor otherwise your illness may get worst. Hope you have fast recovery soon and can go back to work again.

I am okay now my friend and I started work again since 2days ago. I knew my Boss will understand me because of the nature of my job. We are always busy everyday. Now, the temperature here down to 7 degree Celsius. It's very cold I hope I will no longer encounter any sickness this cold days.

If I'm sick I'm in bed or on the couch with all the necessities at my grasp. If I'm truly sick I won't even look online, I'd be too busy sleeping. You did not mention other than a fever what other symptoms you are having. I hope by the time you read this post that it has passed.

I usually just take the day off and sleep when i am sick. I'm self-employed though, so this gets expensive because I don't get sick days.

If you are really sick, you should take a day or two off. You should cure your sickness before go back to work right? Even you want to be hard - working, with such condition of your body, you might make more mistakes that make a correct one right? So, take care yourself first.

I don't think it will hurt to use your computer while you're sick, unless it gives you a headache. It sounds like you're treating yourself well. More Vitamin C might help. Keep warm, keep on drinking water and good tea. Fruit is good, but so are raw vegetables, since they have Vitamin C, too, without the fructose. Hope you feel better soon!
