    Well seeing as though I'm just recovering after a 24hr bug I thought I'd ask this question.

    When you feel unwell do you

    a) Want to curl up in bed alone

    or

    b) Be fussed over by ppl

    I'm more of an attention seeking 'b'

    It depends on the ailment, but generally I want people to acknowledge the discomfort, but not fuss over me continuously. Like if I feel really sick, I don't want someone sitting right next to me and squeezing me tightly.

    If I have a headache, I like to be left alone. If not, I like to be waited on, just a little...:p:

    Definitely alone. I get very irritable when I'm ill aspecialy if I ran a fever so I doubt anyone would like to stay with me anyway. When I work as an auxiliary nurse they sometimes ask me to do one to one and I have to sit next to somones bed for hours. That would drive me crazy to have somone sitting next to me like that if I were ill.

    Alone Alone Alone

    Being ill stirs in me an irrational hatred of all humankind and any form of company...was really bad when I used to share a room. I think partly it is because I get worried that germs will be caught, partly because I don't see the point of someone being there and also because I just want to be a snotty, headachey, sick lump alone if you don't mind

    When my ill, what?

    But on a less pedantic note: I prefer to be left alone in bed.

    Maybe not but the symptoms only lasted 24hrs, well less than that actually.

    Bit of both. Sometimes I need some space and lie in bed, trying to sleep. Or i love it when you are curled up on the sofa and watching films and daytime tv! Great fun! But then I also love people bringing me food and drink etc and just generally looking after me :-)

    I like to have people cook tasty food for me, bring me lots of chocolate and crisps (and painkillers) and then leave me alone. My parents are quite wonderful for this

    I always want to be left severely alone... I hate people fussing over me! I especially hate people trying to take my temperature. Dunno why... I just like to hide away and pretend I'm not ill until I'm better. :P
