Top 5 Worst Things About Being Sick

The whole family has been sick, on and off, for over a week.  We're each taking our turn, then giving it right back to one another.  We have the healthiest germs on the planet--they've survived so many generations in my family that they've evolved intelligence.  Well, I'm sick of it (no pun intended).  Here's why being sick sucks.

5: Being too hot, and then too cold, and then too hot again.

4: You become a social pariah--nobody wants to catch whatever illness you've got.  And no, telling them you're on antibiotics and not contagious doesn't help when you're hacking up a lung and sound like you've got a clothespin on your nose.

3: The chance to veg out and watch whatever you want, but not caring enough to turn the tv on.

2: A day off of work!  But you can't accomplish a thing.

1: A day off of work!  But you work from your home office.  Stupid technology.

What do you think is the worst thing about being sick?  Tell us in the comments--best comment wins the cure to the common cold (yeah we have it, but we're holding it hostage).  While you're laid-up in bed, surf on over to our Facebook page and give us a "like" there.


  1. Waking up is the worst when sick

  2. How about trying to sleep, but failing because you can't breathe right.

  3. When your mind won't rest and yet your body won't move. Even lifting a cup of chicken broth feels like lifting a house!

  4. Yes, another good one. So I guess everyone's been sick before... lol

  5. Going through several boxes of tissues (or rolls of toilet paper, depending on your budget), and ending up with a halo of bright red, scaly skin around your nostril region that does not play well in public.
