The Time Sickness Won

At work Tuesday, I started feeling bad...sore throat, body aches, and cough. I wasn't running fever and I didn't want to leave early, so I toughed it out. By the time I got home, I felt horrible...basically like I had been run over by a huge truck...twice. 


So of course hubby was at work that night. And I called him...and then started crying, because apparently I'm super emotional when I'm sick. I actually did go to bed early and as I laid there on my deathbed, these thoughts seriously went through my head:

"Why can't my mommy live with us so she can be here when I need her?" 

"Who is going to get up every hour and re-wet my washcloth to put on my head?"

"I have to get up and get my own juice?"

"Why will no one text me back at 4 am? No one should be sleeping when I feel this bad."

So yeah, I basically learned that I'm a big baby when it comes to being sick and I need someone to be there to wait on me. Let's just say my mommy spoiled me. 


I'm happy to report that I am feeling much better and I'm actually able to get out of bed. Win. 

Love, love!

awww, I'm usually pretty miserable when I'm sick, although it is NOTHING compared to my hubby when he is sick. Goodness, you'd think the world was ending ...

Glad you're feeling better!

Holly said...

I'm glad you're feeling better. :)

I laughed at the "We have an opening in three months" comic! :P

Kari said...

When I'm sick I desperately want my momma! You're not alone there! Good thing is-my mom only leaves a few blocks from us so if I ever need her she can be here in 2 minutes-5 if she gets stuck at the light. ;)

Evelien said...

Hihi get better soon!
It's ok to feel like that when you're sick ;)

Kristen said...

Haha I'm the SAME way when I'm sick, my hubby fears what I'm going to be like when I'm pregnant!

Shalyn said...

I have felt the exact same these few days about wanting my momma! Why do our hubbys have to have responsibilities when we are sick?! No fair!

Emily said...

I have been fighting a cold for about a week, it actaully kept me from working 1.5 days! Hope you keep feeling better, being sick is no fun!

Shannon said...

yayyyyy for feeling better!!!!

LaynahRose said...

The nerve of some people, sleeping when you felt awful! haha. Soo horrible. I get emotional when I'm sick too :/

MeganGrant said...

I am the exact same way! Ever since coming to college my biggest fear is getting sick, because I think no one will take care of me! It is so sad, but so true! Mom's are the best when your sick, hand's down!

Glad you are feeling better!!!

Jamie Leigh said...

I totally hear ya lady!! I have been on and off sick for the past month...the bug that's going around is relentless! Glad to hear you are doing better :)

Michelle (michabella) said...

Ohhhh my goodness girl! Glad you are better. My mommy spoiled me too!

Natalie said...

I'm a baby when I am sick too!

Bethany said...

I LOVE this. Shawn will only come home if I am, literally, dying. I think to myself, "What if I choke on my vomit in my sleep??" I hate being home alone sick... but somehow puppies make you feel a million times better!

Emily said...

Ha-ha - I don't think you're alone in this at all. To be honest my mom used to crush my tylenol on a spoon, add sugar and I'd wash it down with Ginger Ale. She did this until my teenage years. I was 21 before I learned to shallow a pill. Mom's are great for spoiling you - especially when your sick. Thankfully they are so good at that job. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Erin said...

Glad you're getting healthy and back on track! I just feel like a sloth when I'm sick.... I won't get up to get the juice, change the channel, brush teeth-- anything! I turn into mush!

Leslie said...

glad you're feeling better!! That sounds JUST like me when I'm sick! And my sister STILL makes fun of me for when I got my wisdom teeth out... I was a pathetic couch potato who needed new ice packs and glasses of water constantly! haha

Faith said...

Amanda said...

I totally understand that feeling when you're sick. The first time I got a fever after I moved out, I was like "help me" and I cried A LOT.

Samantha said...

Glad you are feeling better!! I always want my mom to be in the next room over when i'm sick, something about mother's that make us feel better just by having them there! :)

Lauren @ A modern day wife's journey said...

I hate being sick too, feel better soon!

Angie said...

Glad to hear your feeling better. I'm TOTALLY a big baby when it comes to being sick. I'm emotional too, I cry A LOT. I think your right, it comes from our parent's spoiling us.

Beth Ann said...

Bless your heart! Hope you're feeling better today!

Emily w/Amazing Grapes said...

That cartoon is SO TRUE!

I felt the same way when I was sick starting out on my own...and still now. haha

Its the worst knowing you have to do everything for yourself because there isn't anyone to take care of you. The worst feeling ever...and since I'm sick, and emotion, then more cause I'm alone, I'll cry too.

You're not alone, my friend. :) Glad you're feeling better now.

Natalie said...

Michaela said...

I expect to be catered to when I'm sick. These thoughts always run through my mind. Having a nurse as a mama really had me spoiled growing up!! Glad you're feeling better :)

Happiness Is... said...

I got hit with an AWFUL cold a few weeks ago and felt so terrible. I just wanted to lay in bed and have someone take care of me all day. Glad you're feeling better!

Sarah said...

Haha I remember having those thoughts when I got sick the first time after I moved out. My bf at the time was sick, I was sick and the place was a mess. I just broke down crying that I wanted my mom....who only lived like 20 minutes away but still...I wanted to be taken care of. Glad to hear you're feeling a little better :)

Traci said...

Glad you're feeling better. Being sick & alone is the worst.

Impulsive Addict said...

I'm so glad you're feeling better. I always want my mommy when I'm sick too. She makes me my special soup which my husband won't make. She checks on me every hour to see if I need anything. She brings me good meds and refills my 7-up. I totally get it. We need to train our husbands!!!

Bon Bon said...

BOO! So sad. If I lived nearby, I would totally bring you get-well treats:-) xoxo

Man, it's going around, that's for sure! I'm wretchedly sick right now... and I hate it! Fever, congestion, headaches, the whole bit. yuck. Glad you're feeling better!

Nikki said...

I'm glad you're feeling better but I am a super baby too. I always call my mom crying begging her to come take care of me. And she always does for a little bit. That's what Mom's are for.

Kathy S said...

I'm glad you're feeling better. I hate being alone when I'm sick too.
