I don't ever get sick. When I do, it's such an event, even if it's a slight fever and a tummy-ache/body-ache, I will lay around the house and moan and be helpless and melodramatic until it goes away.
I have no clue what to do when I'm sick. The role of the sick person doesn't appeal to me--all that lying around with nothing to do... The only thing I like about being sick is groaning and whimpering and feeling sorry for myself. That's kinda fun.
Oh, and taking my temperature. That's kinda fun, too.
Eat some chicken soup lol.... That is what I am always told to do.... But it hasn't worked yet :) lol
Sorry for you, Emily. :( It can be horrible stuff, being sick. Take a deep breath, relax, and try to just take it easy for a couple of days. UGH! Not in my face! Don't exhale right in my face!! Oh, great...*cough, cough
* I think I caught your sickness via internet. Who would have *cough
* thought it possible! *takes temp.
AWWW!!!!!!! get better!
Take it easy, Emily, and get well soon.
have you ever thought about daily enemas. They are really fun and make a good talking point. A surprising number of people do this, I have discovered,
All the best,

Your husband is a chef. Get him to make you some really good chicken soup and let him wait on you a bit. Get better soon.
Blech! Sorry you feel bad!
As others have suggested, you should eat lots of chicken soup--and also drink lots of hot tea (preferably sweetened with honey since honey can help kill germs.)
In China ginger is very popular against colds. It was my violin teacher in Darmstadt who told me to do boil water with ginger in it, filter and drink with honey. It works more or less...
Ha, thanks for all the well-wishing and sympathy. Now I feel silly, since I was only a bit buggy for a couple of days. Saltines and ginger ale for two days, then good ol' chicken noodle for supper, and everything's all back to normal. Almost...
