I am SICK and want my MOMMY!













Luckily, 3 generations of my family live together, so she is right in the house with me!!

I was running down with a sinus infection for a week or so, and then it blossomed into bronchitis. I am a big baby when I am sick.








One of the many things that I hate about being sick is that there are always side effects from medicines that are making you feel better.

What give me comfort?

1. Attention from my Mom

2. Love and care from my husband – he makes me tea and anything else that I ask him to get, like a Chocolate Frosty from Wendy’s!

3. My sister made me chicken soup!

4. She also got some tapioca, my favorite comfort food.











5. Having my dog and 2 kitties cuddle on the bed with me.












What makes you feel better when you are sick? Leave you thoughts as a comment!

    The only things that get me through illness is sleep & time. Quiet helps as well.

    I hope you’ll feel better soon, Sally! ; )

    When I have my horrific migraines, my girlfriend makes me these homemade nachos that are incredible! Then she makes sure I am tucked up in bed with my neck pillow and tries to keep my 3 kids from busting down the door every 2 seconds 🙂

    Sally- get well soon! I am the same way when I’m sick – although i pretend to be flip about it to people not in the house with me. For me it is all about sleep and a lot of powerade so I can stay hydrated. I like to curl up and just doze off for the whole day and night and magically wake up healthy – although that process tends to take a few days. I hope you feel better soon!

    Chicken soup, a warm bed and a heating pad always make me feel better. My daughter usually brings these to me, so yes, having someone around when you are sick helps.

    It is really hard to answer this question as I almost never get sick and when I do, I simply ignore it and push on. The last time I was sick was with the bird flu which at the time completely put my roommate out of commission while it was no worse than a cold for me.

    If someday that changes and I end up finally paying for all the good fortune I have had with my health, I suppose having a tv and my laptop would be a must.

    Every Sickness is a sign for discrepancy. If I am sick I try to get out what unpleasantness I have in realty. Even my body is weak I make my mind power strong and I look forward to the day I am healthy again. I avoid compassion from family or friends so that sickness has not get enough observance to stay or grow.

    When I’m sick, I take the time to think, how can my life can be improved.

    I send you warm regards and wish infinity healthiness.

    All I need is a good rest. Probably some hot soup. Overnight, the virus would be flushed out. I’m a big boy, so I hide my feeling in my fuzzy dreams 🙂

    Going to sound weird and it stems from my childhood. Pork fried rice with hot mustard.

    Sally: Rarily get sick praise the Lord. When I do, I stay with my regular regiment which is to stay away from milk products, increase my daily intake of vitamin C crystals (several tumblers of pure drinking water (less than 10 ppm of tds); additionally plenty of liquid, warm as in tea, and soup. Try to keep regular sleeping hours as this most beneficial to healing as well. Thank you, Greg

    I’m a great believer in chicken soup (and I’m not even Jewish!) But certainly being tucked up in a warm comfortable bed with a partner bringing tempting treats at regular intervals

    Attention, love and care from my wife. That’s all I need.

  19. February 12, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    Rest, quiet children, sympathy, and a personal waiter (AKA hubby)

  20. February 12, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    Some nice hot tea and soup always make me feel better and drinking plenty of liquids is good as well.

    I think we all want our moms when we are sick. I know i do. I also like to have my blanket my wife made me when we first for together.

  24. February 12, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    When I’m sick, I usually end up sleeping. I don’t usually have the family lining up to take care of me 😦

    When I start to get a cold, there are two things that often help. One is I like to make myself a good whisky hot toddy or two. Big wedge of lemon, studded with whole cloves. A glug of honey and several glugs of whisky. Heat in the microwave until hot but not boiling.

    I’ve also had a lot of luck recently with taking echinacea at the first sign of a cold.

  25. February 12, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    I love to stay at home when I’m sick. Just that! 🙂 That’s all I need! 🙂

    Get better Sally.

    Awww…I felt cozier just hearing about your family and surroundings. I’ve not exactly been “sick”, but it apparently was enough to send an immediate memory of the many times I was sick as a child (bronchitis, being a common one, so I feel for ya there, Sally!) I got a mole literally carved out of my leg last week followed by stitches and restrictions. And it was a couple of days in when I realized that I wanted comfort food. The memory went right back to when I was little, in bed, at home from school. It was then that I’d eat ice cream (when it tasted good), play favourite books like “connect-the-dots”. Well, this week I didn’t buy a connect-the-dots book, but I broke a diet routine that has served me well for many months now. When I remembered my childhood, when the sicknesses felt foreign and out-of-my-control or understanding and that the ice cream or whatever was served and helped, I gave myself permission to enjoy it….Now I need to start watching my eating again!
    Get well soon, Sally! Enjoy the next Frosty for me. (Thanks, Bruce!)

    When I am sick with a cold, I get 2 eggrolls and the hottest Chinese mustard I can find. I slather the mustard on the eggrolls and eat them up.
    If I have a sick tummy, I like a hot bath and peppermint candy.
