It is obvious that when your sick you are supposed to lie down and rest. But there are times that you felt well even if you are sick. That is where boredom strikes you. As for myself, I take advantage of doing things light and when I felt weak I lie down again I can't stand lying down all day.

When I am sick or not feeling well and chose to stay home, I take advantage of the time I have and catch up on some sleep. And if I am any lucky, be a baby and ask for some extra attention from my husband, lol!

That's what I do too. Hahaha! Whether I'm sick or not, home is the place for me to catch up some sleep. It's always a sanctuary. I'm always on the go and will only spend few hours at home. So when I have nothing else to do and I get the day for myself alone, I'd love to date my bed. Hahaha! I feel like I couldn't get enough sleep because of my schedule. :)

Everytime I feel like I'm going to be sick, I take lots of Vitamin C. I literally overdose myself with Vitamin C and I drink lots of water. If I still end up sick, I'll immediately take medication and still continue my daily tasks. I still go to work. However, there are times when I really need to stay at home. Those times when I have to stay home are the best time for me. I work at night so if given the chance to saty at home, I would love to just lie down and sleep all day. Of course it isn't healthy but I feel like it's never enough to catch up with sleep. I like the feeling that everyone takes good care of me. Hahaha! They prepare my meals and ask me how I feel every now and then. I usually go online on Facebook and just chat with my other online friends. :)

It depends on what kind of ache and weakness I have. Sometimes, when I'm weak, I like surfing on the net or watching TV, but sometimes all the stark lights bother me and make me feel even more sick. I usually lie down... or maybe read a really light book, or open the window fro some fresh air. And IU try to sleep as much as possible.

I suppose to be quiet and take some medicine,i think to drink water and have a good rest really matters.Do not feel depressed cuz this also affect your mood and sickness.Hope everything is good with you.

Sometimes I continue my normal activities when I am ill, it depends how ill I am. If I am so ill that I have stay in my bed I spend most of the time on reading. I usually have a lot of books that I have bought but not read and a pile of library books so I always have sometimes to read when I have to stay in bed. I also like to listen to music or watch movies. There is no tv and no stereo in our bedroom, but sometimes I choose to lie on the couch in the living room instead and then I have access to plenty of entertainment.

I rarely stop doing things in the house even if I am sick, unless I feel dizzy. If it were just a fever, I would still be doing the usual chores i do everyday. I feel that I'd be more sick if I let myself lie down all day.

i know that you are supposed to lie down and rest but personally i never do this i much prefer to work through any illness if i can. If im at home i normally clean my house or do some work on the computer but if i just lie around the house i get bored so i prefer to keep busy.
