Do Tell: What Makes you Feel Better?

When I am sick, all I want is the comfort of my own bed and some homemade chicken soup. While I like to commiserate in my lonesome, for some reason it's your creature comforts that make you feel taken care of and nourished even if you're all by yourself. So do tell, what's the formula that makes you feel better when you are under the weather?

Sleep, drinking lots of water, medication, and ice cream. I don't know why, but ice cream always makes me feel better when I'm sick.

Snuggling on the couch wrapped in a blanket and watching tv between naps. I wish I was there right now as a matter of fact. I woke up with a cold and feel like crap. But here I am at work answering phones and trying not to spread my germs. I should put a sign on my door saying wash you hands after doing business in here, but I don't want anyone to think my office is the ladies room, lol.

I stay in bed with my teddy bear, read old British authors like Dickens and Austen, and make my fiance peel me oranges so that they have none of that stringy white stuff on them. I hate stringy white stuff, and I hate peeling it off, and when I'm sick is the only time when I can guilt trip him into dealing with it for me.

I lay on the couch with my big blue comforter from college and have my day- and ny-quils at the ready along with my fave movies and I just try to rest. I don't tend to eat a lot when I am sick, so no soup or crackers for me.

I lay on the couch, eat toast with applesauce, and drink tea. When I was younger, I would play Scrabble with my mom when I was sick. That always made me feel better.

Dragging my pillow and comforter out to my couch and watching animated movies. I think its because when I was sick as a kid I always wanted to watch movies while I was home from school!

Being left alone, like others. My little boy always tries to help me feel better when I'm sick by cuddling with me, but most of the time I like to just lay in bed and take little naps, eat saltine crackers and read magazines.

I like to be on the couch, drink tea, read junk magazines and watch favorite movies like 'Four Weddings and a Funeral'. My fiance makes me anything I want to eat, but usually I want chicken broth with egg whites cooked in it.

I make myself some chicken soup and my hubby makes a bed for me on the couch and puts on movies for me. I like to sleep while I'm watching the movies (cold medicine sleep is the best sleep) and just stay comfy. mmmm now I want to be sick. lol

Yep, theraflu is also my go to medicine everytime. And pho, which is sort of the Vietnamese equivalent of chicken soup. Plus lots of juice with 120% vitamin C. Then sleep, sleep, sleep.
