When you're ill, what's your copping strategy? Is there a particular food you eat or movie you like to watch? Disney films, dry toast and water for me. Discuss!

I think I tend to sleep a little more when I'm sick, but I try to stay active. It's probably not the smartest thing in the world, but I don't wanna let sickness stop me! :D I drink a lot of orange juice when I'm sick as well. The Vitamin C's gotta be good for you, and if nothing else it's a placebo :p I'll usually sit and watch action/adventure movies too.

I generally lie around, listen to music and watch films. I try to have a little walk outside as well, being inside all the time makes me feel worse.

I play games!

I had a massive allergic reaction which involved me coming out in weals all over my body..and to take my mind off it I played Assassins Creed as that had come out at the time.


And when I was ill with a virus for weeks this year good old dragon age got me through!


so......I play games.

I can't stand to be sat still and being ill never stops me which is probably why it takes me twice as long to recover!

I haven't been sick or had a cold for a while (like 2 years), but usually I would say watching horror movies, eating soup, lots of sleep, and then the moment I feel better I order Chinese food or pizza. lol

Same here, minus the twice as long :o I tend to get over being sick fairly quickly, but maybe it's all that orange juice? I mean I seriously suck the stuff down all day :o
ooh a good chowder helps too!

Nice thread :D

I usually just cope with it until it goes away lol! :/ like I have a killer of a cold right now, not really living the days any differently. If I have the flu though then I'll spend more time in bed, but still try and live a normal day :p

I drink tea or hot blackcurrant juice (I've heard that hot blackcurrant juice is an effective remedy against a cold). And mostly lay around and do stuff I normally do when I'm home. Like play Tomb Raider games :)

Don't think English is their first language. At least, I hope not.

For future reference (http://theoatmeal.com/comics/apostrophe), anyway.

I eat chicken noodle soup (Or any other good soup), sleep, and just try to not do much.

I always have a particular movie to watch when I'm sick. XP

It used to be Fantastic Four, but that got replaced by Iron Man.

Tea with lots of sugar and a big dollop of honey in. And 1/4th milk.

Helps my throat, which is most often the ****ed part. XD

Other than that, I go about my daily business.

Okay so I got some grammar wrong, I'm not exactly a 100% :ton:

I snuggle up in a blanket with hot chocolate and watch a movie :p or perhaps read a book. And also, I make sure I have lots of citrus :pi:

I'm horribly sick right now, I'm just going about things how I usually do. Nothing special. :p

I'm going to be honest and say I lay around in bed all day feeling sorry for myself. I'll try to do something but my attempts are usually futile.

LoL being ill is the best. You stay at your bed all day, drinking some jucky stuff, but you don't go to school, or your work :p

I take some vitamin C, drink A LOT of lemonade, some tea, aspirin, and voilla :D

16-08-10, 21:20
I literally curl up in bed and feel sorry for myself until such a time is over. :ton:

Actually, sugar is B-A-D for your immune system. :pi:


Me? It depends on how bad I'm feeling, and what areas or system is being affected.

I could (try) to take a hot bath and soak in it to bring up my body temperature. Sip lots and lots of water... Ice water, just because it's easier. I might eat something spicy. I feel it opens up my airways if I'm congested, and it might also help fight any infection. And I might try to sleep or just lay down a lot.

Usually before I get sick - I ALWAYS seem to have body aches somewhere. And it's most usually in my legs. But I've had other places on my body to ache.

I fight it. I don't like staying in bed for the whole day (though I get a bit more sleep during the night) so I try eat more healthy, take hot showers/baths (no matter how bad they feel when you have cold sweat) and try to exercise a bit. Seems to work as I don't stay ill for that long then.

Depends on how ill I am.

If I'm ill but not too bad I'll play some games, snuggle in a blanket and if I get bored of game watch some TV with some sleep time too.

If I'm rather ill I'll most likely be sleeping or watching TV/DVDs.

If I'm really ill I'll be in my bed, knees up to my chest and be continuously making a noise that sounds similar to "ohm" but isn't quite it as that usually, for some reason, soothes me. That and I'll be trying to sleep.

If I'm incredibly ill I'll be shouting for my mum lol. That and trying to sleep but only managing five minute naps.

Thankfully, I don't get sick very often and I've been lucky enough to have only gotten the odd cold or stomach bug. In cases such as these, I drink juices with vitamin C, and sleep - a lot. Or just soldier on when I'm working. I'm grateful that I stay relatively healthy. which is just as well as being a mum, I pretty much can't just give in to illness. When my son has been at school or college then I can sleep. Sleep is my cure all.

when I'm sick I just lay back in bed and play Games! :D

Well first of all, YAY because when I am sick I don't get to visit school. :smile:

I tend to sleep more, and TV all time long. :D Also some video game is welcomed. I played POP:The Sands Of Time when I was ill once. I'd recommend Dreamfall:The Longest Journey. :tmb:
Also try to drink more fluids and be on diet, with lighter food and more vegetables and fruits.
That'd be it. :D

I don't get sick often, but when I do it usually is more serious than just the flu, so I tend to sleep a lot to pass time faster and half of the time I am awake I spend beeing sorry for myself and moaning how much it sucks. The other half I spend dehydratating myself (I just can't drink anything when I am sick, the thought itself is revolting. Usually someone has to urge me reaaaaly hard.) and catching up on my "movies I have to watch" list or playing a game (quests only though, action gets me dizzy), if I feel like it.
