I have a (forget how to spell the term but it has to do with the nose) infection. It is similar to the flu but the baterica throw a party in your nose instead of your throat and you can't catch it by being around someone who has it.

I am right now taking advil, 600mg of an antibiotic, 1000mg of vitamin C, my allergy medicine, a nasal spray, etc but I don't feel much better and my temperature is at 100 degrees Farenheit. -_-

^I hope you will get well soon.

I have lots of rest, and refrain from using the computer or reading books whenever I'm ill. I wouldn't want to hurt my head when I'm ill, or worry too much, so that I'll recover faster.
I don't get sick easily, so usually I have minor flu or so when I am. Then when mum brings in the herbal medicine (tea) for me to drink. I don't mind its bitterness since I'm used to it.

When I'm sick, I just sleep. And write mental stories. Hallucinations are fun :D

If I am sick, I take it easy and play games and watch movies.. I usally take a rest, but I never go online when I am sick... (you saw me offline for 1 day last couple month, right?)

I usually stay still on the couch,use the computer,watch movies,and play games.
And of course sleep.
The last time I was sick,my mouth was giving me problems,and I took Advil by pill. :confused:
Hope you get better,Shining Arcanine!^_^

I'd go on the computer if I were sick. It's just this sort of habit I have. ^_^ When I was in grade 5-7, I used to fake sick just to stay home and go on the computer, lol. Now since my mom is always home I either watch tv, sleep, or I go downstairs and play video games. I just go on the computer in the evening when I would have if I had gone to school.

I Stay home, relax for couple of hours. Take medicines four times a day every 6 hours. Then after I rest, I stay to the Computer for a little while, then i'd have to sleep
and do something that's active. I wouldn't do anything that's heavy or has anything to do with excercise like I always often do. It doesn't really retrain to help you
heal.

a) drink a lot of water
b) wrap yourself in warm clothes/a fluffy blanket (^_^), and camp in front of the computer/your other gaming consoles
c) sleep

do all 3 of the above and you'll get well before you know it

Unless it's really serious or catchable I go to school. Otherwise I sleep the whole day.

I do what I normally do, do school, play games etc. If I'm really bad off school is replaced with sleep. The first time I played Kingdom Hearts I was sick, but it was in the summer.

Yeah... if there is school then I go to school. Not attending even one day of school is a complete horror and a great disadvantage for you. Even if I am sick I stall myself out until all the important classes are over, and i just go back home if I have nothing but option classes for the rest of the day or something...

I don't know what I usually do...but I remember what I did last time I was sick...

Last time I was sick was a couple weeks ago (like Nov. 7-10). I had a lot of things at one time (this always happens to me; I get a fever, nausea, and uhh...the runs at the same time) I really didn't eat or drink much (except for maybe water or juices to keep my fluids up) other than that I just sat down and watched TV all day while taking my medications at three hour intervals... and When I felt a bit better, I was able to come online again (you may notice that I have a lot of posts on Nov. 10th, more posts than I normally would have for a Monday...)

When I'm sick, I usually sit around, watch tv and play video games.But if I am really sick, I just lay on the bed, and sleep.

I just let my mom and brother cater to my every need, lol. XD (J/K!) Normally whenever I'm sick, I just sit around the house doing stuff such as drawing, and taking medicine every six hours or so. If my mom's in a good mood then I get to come online or play video games. =D If she's not, then I'm stuck doing schoolwork once she realises that I'm feeling better. (Or sometimes she'll tease me and say that I have to. >_>) When I'm really sick, then usually I just lay in bed.

And I hope you get to feeling better soon, SA. ^_^; Unless you already are?
