I can't come, I'm busy dying on the couch
How often do you get sick ? How long does it last? What do you do when you are sick?
Normally, I will get sick with a common cold every three or four months, sometimes more. I normally get over it within two weeks at the latest, one week at the least.

Sassy Milkshake December 8th, 2012 12:21 PM

I usually get sick like once a year, and only for a couple days. I'll stay home and sleep all day, which actually doesn't sound too bad right about now. ;P

Shiny Celebi December 8th, 2012 12:26 PM

Not often luckily, the lenghth depends on the illness. Im a germophobe to a certain extent and hate getting sick, so I wash my hands all the time, sometimes I do get sick with the flu or something and it isnt too bad though I usually feel miserable.

Maybe once a year. I recover pretty quickly, depending on what it is. I had some sort of bug about a week ago and was better within three or four days. It's annoying for me to be sick, though, because I'm asthmatic. :T So it fires up my asthma for a while. Oddly enough, in the morning and when I go to bed during a time when I'm having trouble with the asthma, my vision gets trippy. Sometimes to the point of hallucinations. D:

I get the common cold about once a year or so, with Diabetes, it takes a little longer to go away, about a week or so.

Harley Quinn December 8th, 2012 4:56 PM

I get sick like once a month for three to five days, usually :( My immune system isn't incredibly strong and I'm rather susceptible to even the most passive of diseases, leaving me either bedridden or extremely cranky for up to a week :((((((( On the bright side, I get to sit down and do what I love doing: nothing. On the dark side, I'm usually vomiting while I'm doing so.

Yoshikko December 8th, 2012 5:05 PM

I never get sick. I don't consider a cold being sick and I get colds sometimes during this time of year but that's normal, everyone gets those and no one stays home for them lol. I can't remember the last time I was ill.

Kura December 8th, 2012 5:14 PM

I rarely get sick.. once every year or more like once every two years. I just stay home and sleep the entire day basically. I do that so it lasts only for a day or two.. and the rest of the days are more manageable :3

Dave December 8th, 2012 5:20 PM

I don't normally get sick often, though I was very recently (yesterday) sick with a stomach bug, but it wore off pretty quickly. If I get sick, it either isn't very serious, doesn't last very long, or both, fortunately.

Volcanix769 December 8th, 2012 5:22 PM

I used to get sick a lot as a baby. :p And now I get sick once or twice a year. My skin would get sensitive and hot. Also when I got recently sick, I had 2 nosebleeds at 11:44 P.M and it was scary. I couldn't stop it and it left a permanent stain on my sheets. Also it first happened when I was in the bathroom. All it left was many stains.

Shining Raichu December 8th, 2012 11:33 PM

I'm sick for one week of every year. It's always a common cold, nothing more. I was an incredibly sick child; I always had asthma and the like, but I grew out of it all and now I'm an extremely healthy adult :D

Talli December 9th, 2012 2:01 AM

I'm usually sick once every couple of months, even if I'm really sick I'm made to get on with my life.

Ash December 9th, 2012 2:17 AM

Sick to where I've had to stay home? Not in years. I don't even remember the last time I stayed home because I fell ill with something. I've had the common cold, but who stays home for that, and the last time I've had so much as a fever it was overnight and was gone in the morning.

Knew drinking Orange Juice a lot in the past would pay off. Need to drink Orange Juice more often again though. I feel as if I've fallen lazy about doing so.

Noah Ridgewood December 9th, 2012 4:06 PM

I get a cold twice a year and I get migraines often. Migraines usually last about two days and a cold usually lasts for two weeks with some effects still lingering in my system for about three more weeks.

Hannah December 29th, 2012 3:52 AM

I rarely get sick. It's one of my super-cool special abilities that no one cares about.

Brynjolf December 29th, 2012 10:30 AM

I get sick maybe once every four months or so. It usually lasts up to three days maximum.

Keiran December 29th, 2012 10:53 AM

Since graduating high school (the most hospitable habitat for germs apparently) years ago I've rarely been sick. I think I've been sick for two weeks total in 4 years on 2 different occurrences, but they were mainly just fevers and loss of appetite.

When I read the thread title, I thought you were gonna ask how often you fake sick to avoid being social; which would be a lot more common for me. =P

Meganium December 29th, 2012 12:41 PM

I'm one of those people that get rarely sick, either I've been this way since I was young, or I'm just a bit of a mysophobe. xD When I do get sick, however, most of the time my illnesses get exaggeratedly horrible. Like this last time I got horribly sick. I got laryngitis, and I had to be in the hospital overnight because I had a fever of 105 degrees. Yeah, tell me about that. xD

Recently I got sick, but it was just a minor cold, I took care of it with robitussin. ;)

outfox December 29th, 2012 12:45 PM

I too rarely get sick, but when I do get sick it hits me like a brick. I've been struggling with developing bronchitis for a little over a month now -.- doesn't stop me from doin what I do though.

Avishka December 31st, 2012 2:55 AM

i rarely get once in six months but if i get sick it is mostly cough and it is difficult for me to breathe D: it lasts for one or two weeks . i just hate it >.<

Mr Cat Dog December 31st, 2012 2:59 AM

I haven't been to a doctor in about 10-or-so years, but I get one or two colds a year. That's about it really... but given my diet and the amount I exercise, I'm surprised I haven't had three heart attacks as of yet!

Skylands January 1st, 2013 12:59 PM

I rarely become sick, kudos to my good hygiene habits. My past sicknesses last no longer than a couple days. I cannot remember the last time I've had anything so minor that it prevented me from pursuing my regular activities.

WarriorCat January 1st, 2013 1:04 PM

I almost never get sick, but when I do, it hits really hard. I guess I never get sick because my bf and I exercise and go to the gym almost everyday.

Oshamaru January 1st, 2013 1:07 PM

I rarely get sick. Probably due to washing my hands way too often.

pikakitten January 1st, 2013 2:43 PM

It tends to come mildly frequently in summer, more common in fall, even more common in winter and pollen in spring means nothing good for me xD, it lasts like a day mostly xD I tend to just be in bed watching tv or online when I'm sick xD

All times are UTC -8. The time now is 2:41 AM.
