Bearly feeling up to it? What do you do when you start to feel sick?

Last Update: January 26, 2016

Sick day?

Yesterday afternoon I began to feel as though I was developing a sore throat. I was instantly worried because I know it's not instant fix situation. One can only pray and hope that the viral infection will leave before you lose most of your sanity.

The frustration continued when I awoke this morning. My throat felt worse and now my joints were feeling achy, and I now had a mild headache.

When you are Bearly Feeling up to it, or are feeling sick what do you do?


Do you ignore the fact that you are showing symptoms that suggest that you should slow down, rest, and make sure your getting enough fluids?

Do you go to work / do everything you'd normally do anyways?

Or do you instantly give in and begin to allow your body to combat your illness and heal asap?


When I was in school, and for the most part while I had a regular job this is what always happened when I got sick:

The problem is not that I pretty much work for myself that sick days mean that I can't make progress on my business that can be more frustrating than spoiling my prefect attendance.

I have although come to realize that it is better to take time to rest and recover when you're feeling under the weather because if you don't the time it will take to recover will be greater than it needs to be.

What's your take on being sick?

What's your approach to sick days, and or determining your
going to take a sick day?

Take massive vitamin C, some Zinc and "Oregano Oil" to combat bacteria. Get some sleep to let the system recover. Oh, don't forget the Hot Chicken Soup!
Remember prevention is the best medicine so keep yourself healthy to begin with.
Feel better!

I like your approach, I've always been a firm believer in Vitamin C. Way to confront your sickness naturally! Thanks for sharing. I'm feeling better now, but not yet fully outta the woods. Thanks.

Mothers are not allowed to be sick. You just have to keep going for the family.

Being a Mother is a Divine and Noble calling that is the most important thing you will ever do. I is always going to be hard because it is always about sacrifice. Mom's sacrifice a lot for their families, even their health. Moms sick days are definitely above average.

Thanks for sharing your voice, All the best you.

lol. I know, some days are harder to bear than others. Even though I am feeling sick, I still made it into the office. I didn't feel like giving up. Sure I got to the office later than usual, but progress is better than no progress at all.

Thanks for the warm encouragement.
All the best to you Mark.
