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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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. ;)

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!

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.

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.

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

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
