I got sick yesterday. Tonsilitis, fever, and the sniffles. Nothing major really, it's just that I was home alone. I cooked noodle soup with corn and potatoes and hid between the sheets for the rest of the day. I just remembered when I was younger and people would fuss over me whenever I get sick. They brought me fruits and promised me ice cream and chocolates once I got better. Oh well. For those of you who live alone, maybe you can share about your thoughts on this. Achooo... excuse me. Sniff.

Yey! That really made me feel a lot better. I didn't know that I'd sound like a moping spoiled brat to some but it's really not a mood booster when you're sick alone. You just wish that someone will... cook noodles for you. :) But you made me smile. And thank you for the prayers.

Actually it's the other way round for me when I am sick or ill I get very grumpy and grouchy and I just want to be left alone, I am a very bad patient and will snap like a bear with a sore head, so people know that I want to be left alone! I hate people around me when I am not well! I need complete peace and quiet and NO interuptions of any sort.

As a child, everyone will get good attention and care when they fall sick even when they get common cold. As we grow older we must learn to take care of ourselves, without expecting care from others.

People around me never had any idea when I am sick, because I always move alot. With this way, I can ease away some of those things that would make me feel more sick. I never lay on bed, I always try to make myself busy and hoping that I would get better. But when I know I can't help it anymore, that's the time where I get to rest and take some medications. I try my best to eat foods normally, maybe the veru reason why most people always get the wrong impression with my actions!;)
