How Concerned Are You When Someone Is Sick?

We are all good friends and partners in better ways than others. Are you the type of pal that has a great beside manner, patience and empathy, or do you prefer to just casually call and send your best wishes but you really can't be bothered with someone else's aches and pains?

Yeah, I don't actually go visit anyone who's sick unless it's dire; like they have no food or anything in the house or can't drive themselves to the doctor. Then I'll get involved; shop for them or drive them. But if someone's home with a bad cold or the flu and they don't need anything, no I don't go over. I call and see how they're doing but that's it. I know if I'm sick, the last thing I want to do is entertain company.

With my busy schedule, I'm usually the one that will call and say, "Let me know if you need anything". If they're really sick, I'll send flowers or a card. Sick people aren't much fun to be around (obviously) but I like to help when I can.

Same here Bonne, I call and listen nicely, but honestly if it came down to me sitting next to their bed while they had a cold, I wouldn't be much help, I get bored pretty fast, and usually they're asleep, so I do bring candy and stuff (I know, not good if you're sick) but I don't do the momma type stuff like taking temperature and whatnot.

I am so not good with taking care of people when they're sick. Usually, I'll give them a can of soup and say good luck...

When I'm sick I like to be taken care of, so I like to take care of anyone if I can:)

I always tell my friends when they are sick that if they need anything call me. My friend last year was my roommate and she was always sick. I took take of her all the time- made her tea, got her homework etc. Even in high school when she had her tonsils taken out I went over and saw her often and brought her homework so she wouldnt get behind in our AP class. However when I am sick (which is hardly ever) she never offered to care for me or sometimes didnt even call to see if I was ok. So I offer people if they need it but Im not as doctor as I use to be because people just dont return the favor
