    A glass of milk is the worst thing if you're feeling sick!
    Well, it helped me feel better I've heard this a few times, whilst I've also heard from others that it helps the situation (seems to be two different stories!) I think it lines the stomach and is actually better for you.

    Go to bed, watch some films and lie on my front, lying on my front always helps when I feel sick for some reason

    Depends how ill.

    If just sick - just get on with things. Anything worse - lie in bed and sleep as that's all I can do! That said when I was in hospital last week we watched TV etc, was quite good fun.

    I only seem to get colds and they're usually not that bad so I just try to get a good night's sleep then curl up in my duvet on the sofa and watch films. If I feel a bit sick I drink flat coke and that sorts it out.

    i sleep feeling sorry for myself, i watch t.v. and moan about how sorry i feel for myself, i phone any of my unsuspecting friends and tell them how sorry i feel for myself, in other words i just laze about, wallowing in self pity for a day and then i'm back to normal..!

    Okay, that's interesting! I absolutely love a drink of milk, but when I have an upset stomach, it's the worst thing in the world. I guess I figured that applied to everyone

    To be honest I think this is something nobody is agreed on. I've heard both "milk is great when you're ill" and "milk is the worst thing when you're ill". For me it helps I guess everyone is different. :yep:

    The same as I do when I'm feeling ok, just with a whole lot more medicine and tissues. I can't stay in bed all day, the only time I can is if I've had a seizure, in which case for the next day or so I'll sleep constantly.

    I snuggle up on the sofa with a duvet, drink plenty of high juice and watch the Mr Bean movie. That film always cheers me up!

    If I'm really ill- ie flu or too weak to move about I just curl up on the sofa and watch ****e TV/ read until i drop off.

    I drink milky sweet tea, eat bananas and soup all day as I usually have a sore throat when I'm poorly so eating properly hurts.

    When I'm feeling better I'll go out for a short walk and get some fresh air.
