Writer's Block: Sick day

When you get sick, do you prefer to go it alone or be doted upon by a friend, partner, or parent? Do you usually go to work or school or stay home?

When I'm sick or hurt, equally as likely, I hate being doted on. I don't get sick much, but I try to go to work/school through it. Unless I'm drugged, but even then, I've worked/attended class. The number of classes I've attended/shifts I've worked post-ictal would freak out most people, but I decided years ago that having seizures didn't make the world stop turning. I do shield friends and family from them when possible. My BFF on campus has never seen one despite having seen me post-ictal lots. As for injuries, my pain threshold is freaky. And my patience for maternal hovering is nil. The summer I broke my ankle, I wanted nothing more than to come back to Tally just to get away from my mother. Yeah, walking around campus would've hurt like hell, but the freedom would've been worth it. And walking up and down the stairs to my parents office wasn't exactly a picnic anyway.

Ok, I realize I've opened Pandora's box for the newbies on my flist, but you're free to ask whatever questions you want.


Yeah, but I'm usually looking for advice/comfort from the doctor aka dad.
