    I soldier on during the day and fall in a heap at night. Being sick is exhausting but the kids can't look after themselves so I kinda have to keep going at least until DH gets home from work.

    I'm all of those things PP's have mentioned - whiney, sooky, mopey. Poor DH indeed!

    I'm not a fan of ppl taking bugs to work & thankfully my workplace is fairly strict in this regard - you get told to stay home or turned around if you come in sick. This has been a god send whilst pregnant during winter. I feel terrible about delaying my work whilst sick which adds to the above!

    I'm a sook. It depends what kind of sickness, usually I just solider on - as if any of us really have a choice!
    I'm just getting over influzena though - and my DH had to take some days off work to look after the kids, I couldn't get out of bed, the last time I was sick and couldn't get out of bed I had sepsis. So it generally takes a lot for me to not be able to function.

    I do cry a lot when I am sick though. Haha.

    Depends on how sick.

    I mostly just soldier on as much as I can... but will slack off in the areas I CAN slack off in (like dinner - it's takeaway if not, "just feed yourselves... I honestly don't care if you eat ice-cream for dinner, so long as I don't have to get it.").

    Taking time off work is really difficult... they make it hard. You've got to call up all your co-workers at the crack of dawn to get them to replace you... and of course, people are sleeping so they're either angry you called, or they don't answer (which is fair enough really). If you can't get anyone to help, you've got to go in anyway. So I mostly just suck it up and go anyway.

    If I'm at home though - I lay around and do nothing.

    Depends on how sick I am. I had swine flu a few years back and I fell to pieces.

    I'm currently suffering really badly with morning sickness and I'm an emotional train wreck.

    This is me, I'm sick now and I'm thinking this is the worst illness anyone can have. I have an almost 14yo who is amazing if I'm desperately sick but not very sympathetic while I'm medium sick like now. I have a tummy upset and achy muscles and she just came in to ask me what's for dinner.

    Yep, the jobs where you are not productive and busy can be the worst.
