Take care

#162: When you’re unwell, do you allow others to take care of you, or do you prefer to soldier on alone? What does it take for you to ask for help?

It depends what kind of illness I have in all honesty – if it’s a bad cold, I’ll just soldier on alone in my room but if it’s anything more serious and I physically can’t get up, I let/ask others take care of me… if anyone is around that is! Just to clarify as well, my definition of “letting others take care of me” is pretty much bringing meals/drink to my room as I never want to infect anyone else, so will always quarantine myself from the world. I do believe that a little bit of TLC when you’re ill really does make you better faster. I find if I’m ill and I try to get on as normal, the illness annoyingly lasts much longer. So, in my opinion, the less you do the better!
