Daily Question: Tues. Sept.22

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
About being sick:

How do you handle it? Do you want to be left alone, cuddled, etc? Do you whine or just take it?
post #2 of 28
Being single, I don't have a lot of choice in the matter.

Luckily for me, I just want to be left alone, curl up under a blanket, and sleep it off in a NyQuil induced fog. I do prefer to have someone who can go out and do some shopping (groceries, cold medicine, etc) if possible though.

(Gotta love NyQuil. )

Until last year I had Mom to coddle me when I felt really bad. Now I have to depend on Sis. Luckily she lives close by.

Alone with a bottle of peppermint schnapps.

The first time I got sick after I moved out on my own, I just wanted my Mom. I was used to being waited on when I was sick. I admit it I was spoiled.

Now I just want to be left alone. I have a cold right now as a matter of fact & a guy at work keeps asking why I'm frowning. I had to admit that I am a big baby about being sick.

I prefer to be left alone which is fortunate as I am a whiner when I am sick.

But since I live alone, and stay home when I am sick, it's all good.

I have fibromyalgia, and when it flares up...all I can do is lie as still as possible and cry. Not a pretty sight.

Ha! ha ha ha ha ha!

Stay at home mom with a little guy & one on the way I don't have allot of options! I'd love to curl into bed and just stay there but when you've got a toddler jumping on you, that means it's time to get up! Plus I hate drugs & really don't take them at all when I'm pregnant so I just SUFFER through it. Thankfully I haven't been sick too much in the last 3 years, but I do have my pregnancy days when Lucas just gets turned loose in the living room with some toys & seasame street so mommy can lie down!

Of course when my husband gets sick he's in bed with "mommy can I have some soup?" "mommy my head hurt?" "moooommmmmyyyyy!!!" MEN!! they are such babies!!!

depends on what I have....stomach bug leave me alone.

everything else I'm like moo I will just curl up next to DH. OR Moo will curl ontop of me. Tilly tends to just sit at my feet purring loudly when I'm ill.

I totally agree!!! When DH gets a tiny cold you think the world was ending... MIND you I have had some nasty bugs (Like i had strep for our wedding) and he is always like suck it up and take it like a man!!

I don't necessarily want to be cuddled, but I like having my husband. He's very good at taking care of me.
post #16 of 28
I'm fairly stoic about it, but I don't suffer mother hens gladly -- I'd rather be left alone for the most part.
post #17 of 28
I cant remember the last time I was really sick, minus allergies and sinus problems, but I prefer to be alone, or with the kitties. Now that I have Murphee...im using him as my cuddle bug.
post #18 of 28
Quite frankly, I'd rather be left alone whether I'm sick or not, lol!
post #19 of 28
I like to sleep it off but have someone nurse me with food/drinks. I used to suffer and work through the colds but a few times I got worst so now I am the complete opposite and don't want to leave bed.
post #20 of 28
I usually just mope around in my room watching tv, under the covers with a Kleenex box and a dog or cat. DH is a sweetie when I'm sick. He brings me soup, medicine, etc. I don't mind getting cuddled, but I don't want to get him sick, then I'll have to baby him. hehe

Same here!
post #22 of 28
Definitely left alone. I like to go in my room, just shut the door, turn off all the lights, and suffer in silence. Being sick sucks! I just recovered from the stomach flu. With my big family, everyone kept dropping by to ask how I was and it thoroughly annoyed me! lol
post #23 of 28
It would be nice if DH asked if I wanted anything. He will call to check up on my (waking me up of course.

I want the kitties to be nice and quiet though...
post #24 of 28
I live alone, so no attention there, except from the cats... but I do prefer to be left alone... unless i need something... but Safeway does delivery, so I find groceries to go with hte meds I'm usually low or out of... and have them delivered...
post #25 of 28
I WISH I could be left alone. However, this is never possible with 3 kids and the fur babies. My husband has always been a "suck it up" person. Therefore, most of the time I suck it up and just deal with it. I'm sure one day my body will revolt and knock me flat on my butt.

If my mom lived closer she would take care of everything and let me sleep.

Oh my goodness am I a whiner! I want to be cuddled unless I'm in so much pain that it hurts.
