    I've been sick for the past five days. Which got me thinking...

    When you're sick do you

    a) like to be left alone until you are well?
    b) like to be taken care of?
    c) like to ignore it, suck it up and go about your business?
    d) a combination of all of the above

    I am sort of a combination. I like the peace and quiet of being left alone, but there are times I wish someone was here to take care of me (like now).

    What about you?



    Also, are you grouchy or whiny?

    I like to dope myself up, sleep, and have wonderful dreams.

    a) Yes
    b) No
    c) No. If I ignore it and decide to be around people, then I take the risk of getting them sick if the what I have is infectious.
    d) No combo

    I'm neither whiny nor grouchy. I tend to have a flat affect when I'm sick.

    A.
    I prefer to be left alone.
    Once I'm back to normal, I can be around people again. Hahaha

    I'm a baby and need sympathy. Fortunately I seldom get sick, knock on wood for that! I just like to hibernate and have someone care for me.

    LOL! Both Bill and I have had times like this:





    Sorry you're under the weather Quest.

    I think he would help:

    Haha. I have never had a thread bump to the top as quick as this one.

    I think I mostly want someone to care for me right now because I just ran out of Sprite Zero (which is what I like to drink when sick) plus I need a couple of other things and I do not feel like going to the store.

    I just need someone to run some errands for me.

    Oh and I do get whiny. I will try to keep it out of the forums.

    If I have a cold, I pretty much sleep it away.

    If I am really, really sick it doesn't matter because there is no one to help anyway. Have gotten through several bouts of chemo and several surgeries with nothing more that a ride to and from the hospital.

    There have been several times when I was completely unashamed to say "I want my mommy." She was a nurse.

    I vant to be alone
    And
    Ignore it as much as I can and go about my business. However, don't fuck with me, as my fuse gets a lot shorter when I'm sick.

    I'm a bit of a combination as well. Overall I like to be left alone to just get over it, but if the right person wanted to take care of me I would probably change my tune pretty fast. :p

    I'm usually "A" because I hate feeling like I'm burdening others, though secretly I would prefer to be taken care of.

    I don't get grouchy, I usually get anxious... being sick makes me feel nervous and uneasy.



    I hope you feel better soon Quest! icon_sad.gif I wish I could make you some chicken soup!

    I am a combination of A & B. I like to have my boyfriend bring me what I need- medicine, food, water, my phone, my laptop, a book...but just to hand it to me and then get out of my face.

    B. I like my s.o. to bring me his hot soup or special things he makes for me to eat. I'd also be the kind of guy who'd like visitors if I was in the hospital.

    I tend to get a bad temper when I'm sick, but I like to be taken care of. I also like to be heavily medicated

    D.

    I like to be left alone during the worst part (the beginning) and then after the worst is over, I suck it up and try to go about my business as usual.
