I am like a child when I’m sick.
There I said it. I’m not sure if its just me, but when I’m sick, and by “sick” I mean have a cold or something, I feel as though I’m not capable of doing anything. I’ve been told that I’m like a baby, I need someone to take care of me when I’m sick, someone to make me soup, tea, and anything else I need. I find myself laying down on the couch, unable or unwilling to do anything for myself. Its not pretty, but that’s just the way I am, I’ve come to accept that.
I’ve noticed that, in general, women seem to be capable of so much more when they are feeling under the weather. Men on the otherhand, at least those I know, tend to be useless. I know personally when I’m sick it makes me feel so much better to have someone there to take care of me. It makes me feel loved and at peace to know someone is there and I don’t have to worry about anything.
Today I’m taking the rest of the day off work, I only went in this morning because I like to think I’m important and things wouldn’t function without me. It only took about an hour and a half for me to realize I can’t think clearly when I’m so congested and my head feels like its going to explode. So my being there and not actually being able to function probably wasn’t going to help much.
My next stop is my couch, where I will curl up with a blanket, watch a little TV and maybe find the energy to turn my laptop on. I’m not the only one who is so useless when they’re under the weather am I?
On a side note, “under the weather”. Where else would you be but under it?
