What do you do when you're sick?

Post by VG_Addict » Tue Aug 22, 2017 9:28 pm

I've been feeling a bit under the weather today, so I was wondering, what do you like to do when you're sick and in bed all day?

Sleep.

Seriously, after magfest this year we both caught this bug from the depths of hell and were more or less unconscious for four days straight. Missed a huge chunk of AGDQ D:

Stay in bed and sleep or do self-indulgent things mostly. If I have things I need to do, I do them at a slower pace and let myself get away with giving maybe 50% on days when I'm not feeling my best.

Up my supplements depending on which version of sick/contagion I have. Rest a lot. Drink plenty of water. Sleep when I need to. Quarantine myself if it's contagious. (I refuse to be Patient 0 in an epidemic that kills off half of the world. :p )



Hope you feel better soon, VGA!! *gives you healing marshmallows* :D

Depends.

If you have a sore throat, take a half apple cider vinegar and half honey, then gargle and spit it out. I used to swallow it but I found it more effective if you gargle and spit it out. It works miracles on sore throats. The honey coats it.

I only ever really stay in bed if I have body aches or headaches. I hate the grossness of feeling sick, so I take hot showers and make sure I'm all prim and proper. And of course, I play lots of video games. I fondly remember one time when I finished Tomb Raider (2013) way back because I took almost a week off from work because I was sick.

Also take Vitamin D3. Years ago I overheard a co-worker say that ever since he started taking Vitamin D3 on a daily basis, he never got sick again. Because I always like to test random crap like that, I tried it too. I haven't taken a day off work because I was sick in like a couple years - I think that last time when I played Tomb Raider. Idk how much credence there is to the D3 thing is but - whatever.

Pretend I'm not sick, hoping the placebo effect will make it go away faster. Never works.
