I have recently been pretty ill with some sort of virus. I hate being sick...all I do is lie in bed watch television and take medicines. What do you do when you are sick? Do you like the time off..or do you hate being sick? Any remedies...treatments?

Yep...I know what you mean. I am getting back to normal too. I went out yesterday...which may have been premature but I had to get my husband a Valentine's gift...so I had no choice. I am slowly getting back to normal..but this thing just like to hang on...eeekkk. I don't like being held up for too long either...lol.

It is really hard to be sick and I really hate it for you cant do all the things you usually do. I use to take remedies after I feel bad and take medications for me to get rid off a worst sickness.

Thanks for the comments. I take things to make me feel better too. I also take garlic because it is a natural cold and flu fighter and boast immunity.

Since I have been diagnosed with my Illness I have been sick a lot as it comes with the Illness. I hate it as I have always been an active, working Person. When I am really bad I sleep most of the Time as that is the one thing that helps me, but I hate it. The Medication I have to take knocks me out everytime.

I think the best thing to do if you are ill is to just carry on regardless. If you aren't dwelling on the illness you feel better. I have no choice anyway as I have to look after the kids even if I'm not feeling well so I just carry on.

Good for you. However sometimes you are just too sick to do too much...I do agree that you have to carry on...especially when you have kids..but if you couldn't...what would you do?

When I get sick, I usually stay in bed. Take a rest and take some medication for faster relief. I take a whole day rest and feed my stomach when its hungry. But sometimes when I feel like unspleepy so I read some books or read some lyrics, not sing them cuase I do believe I possess a kinda hurting to the ear voice. I only take medicine that is prescribe by doctors.
