Question of the Day - October 2nd

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Katie must still not be feeling well today and I think she passed the cold along to me, so today's question wil be based on that.

Do you have any "comfort" things that make you feel better when you are sick? chicken soup, a certain blanket, etc?

I have snuggles with Puskin.
And if he's in a grumpy mood, big fluffy socks and my snuggly cashmere sweater will do the trick instead.

I'm still getting over a cold myself But whenever i'm sick like that i hate fuss, so all i want to do is get my blankie, adopt a position on the sofa with plenty of fluids by my side, the remote for the t.v. and the babies on my lap, with peace and quiet, and i had all three of them on me at the weekend, bliss!!

Chicken soup for a cold, and Bella's stuffed kitty Cannoli and her Blanket too But I cuddle with them everynight whether I'm sick or not

Katie I hope you feel better soon

Usually just some peace and quiet but with three boys...that doen't happen. So something that I love is having some lemon tea. You fill a cup with hot water, put in lemon juice to taste and some honey to taste. It feels SOOO good. I also like to soak in a nice warm bubble bath.

A bowl of nice hot chicken noodle soup and Frisco of course!

And when I have a sore throat I find hot chocolate helps.

Whenever we get sick - its all about being cozy Get everything you need all ready to go & just lay/relax the rest of the day & hope the sickness goes away!

A big bowl of chicken noodle soup soothes nicely...and being snuggly with our fuzzies helps too, they make you smile when you aren't feeling good

Just laying down with my electric blanket on and my big Yowdy siamese cuddled up with his head on my pillow purring makes me feel so much better.

Chamomile Tea. The heat from it helps keep my sinuses drained (I know gross), but that's the one place I get hit everytime I get sick: stuff sinuses to the point I can't breathe.

However if I start to feel ill, my body will begin to crave orange juice. It's really funny that way and most times I drink it until I'm no longer craving it and I don't get sick

My cat!!!! If I EVER feel bad, she is there for me.
Also, music. There are some bands that just make me feel great no matter what's wrong

It always used to be Grandma's chicken soup. She used to make a pot a week. But it's been years since I had any between moving out of state in my early teens and now that she's not in top health. My Aunt makes it and I'm sure it's just as good, but I've not had hers.

Hi Katie!

Send some of that sleep over here. I have been watching movies a good part of the day. Abby keeps coming by to check on me.

Hope you feel better.

Yes - my cats! Nothing makes me feel better than some lovin' from them when I'm feeling down or sick! : Especially from Maverick, b/c he's my little snuggler!

Fluffy socks, my favorite blanket and Apple Spice tea. Then both the kitties and I curl up on the couch and stay there. Sassy stays with me all the time when I am not feeling well, but Linus generally will stay for a bit, then go play for awhile.
My favorite comfort food is chicken vegetable soup, homemade but that is not as difficult as it sound. I always make way to much and end up freezing it so I always have a ready supply.

I've had a cold for two days now. UGH! I like to be in bed snuggled under the blankets with cats surrounding me sleeping the yuckies away. I did it today since I didn't have to go in until 11. I didn't feel much better but I was happy waking up with all the kitties surrounding me, like my kitty protection.

Feel better everyone!
