STRUGGLE ON

Question Of The Week 11-13-17

As you may have noticed I had a difficult time posting the comments to the main page.  This has happened once before and now I think I've figured it out so it won't happen again.

When you are ill, do you struggle on regardless or just curl up in bed?

I struggle on - I can't think of the last time I called in sick to work. (I only do that if throwing up is involved.)


If I admit I'm sick, then I'm really sick, and you'll find me under a bunch of covers shivering in bed.


Like Tabor said, I used to struggle on in my younger days. Now that my kids are grown and I'm self employed, I can afford to rest if I'm under the weather.


I struggle on. lol


I keep to myself...I keep to myself most of the time, anyway. Nothing much changes.


When younger with job and kids I struggled on. As I have aged, I just baby myself until I feel better.


I struggle on, I hate being sick so I rarely admit it when it happens, to myself or others ha ha


I'm rarely sick, but unless the illness is contagious or a debilitating migraine, I would probably just keep going.


I struggle on unless my illness calls for hospitalization:-)


I try my hardest to struggle on and dose myself up with painkillers.


Struggle on sounds more like something I would do. I do hop you are well, warm greetings to you.

Curl up in bed until it all goes away. I'm not that important

I try to rest if possible

Oh my, if I am sick I am really sick and can't get out of bed if I try. I just pile on blankets and sweat it out. And I want everyone to just leave me alone!

It depends...sick like the flu? I hit the couch. Sick like aches and pains...I struggle on. I have some kind of sciatica right now that is really hurting. But I stretch and stretch and try and walk it out. I can't take ibuprophrens or aspirin anymore...my stomach lining has been eaten alive by those pills. So I have to tough it out.

Keep on going. Probably started once I had kids but endures now that they are out of the house and taking care of themselves. I figure I can suffer at my desk as easily as in bed. Honestly though, I have had little more than bad colds and flus so I cannot say I've been REALLY sick. I know people who didn't miss work through Chemo.....not sure if I'm that persistent.

Thankfully I'm hardly ever sick. Don't know I actually struggle on, or simply prefer to do something, think about something else.

When I worked for a living, I struggled on. Now days, as long as the animals are fed, walked and watered, I'm a snuggle weenie in bed till my health world rights itself.

A struggler. Almost always. Sometimes stupidly.
