When you don't start to feel so good, how do you deal with it? Take Medicine, wait for it to pass, go to the doctor, ect. ect?

Depends on just how bad it has gotten. There was only one time I ever went to the doctors because I felt sick since I have been an adult. Usually I just judge whether or not it is going to turn into something worse and if it might or will I take something to try and lessen how long it will last. If I feel it will be over with quickly on its own I just wait it out.

In order: Let it pass out. Medicine. Poop. Sleep. Then Urgent care before hospital.

Or urgent care before hospital.

Life-threatening: 911/hospital

Currently sick right now~
For now I am drinking plenty of water and honey with lemon. And making sure to get plenty of sleep.
I try to make natural remedies to help me. But when it gets worse I just see the doctor.
But I rarely get sick: I make sure to drink green juice everyday to boost my immune system. I drink plenty of water. Make sure to bundle up and carry hand sanitizer with me everywhere. I also try to take vitamins every day. Unless it's something I can't control myself, I usually just stay home and get better.

Are we talking about the flu or cancer?

I ignore most ill feelings until:

- I can't move (broken limbs, unconscious, etc.)
- Unexpected blood from a random orifice.
- I see a lump (important not to ignore, kids).

Colds or Flu I tend to ignore unless I'm hacking up psychedelic phlegm and think I have Pneumonia... which at my age, could be fatal. So I don't ramp up into meds or doctor apts. unless it's pretty serious. The over-the-counter stuff is a scam.

A cup of hot tea with dash of honey and an anime, and I'm right as rain.

I usually try to cope with it without drugs or a doctor visit. I pretty much only go to the doctor to get vaccinated.

I've just let it ride out and taken medicine many times when I should have gone to the doctor sheer laziness plus I hate going to the doc =[ Sometimes it just seems like they wanna run up your bill as much as they can with meds that aren't always necessary!

For headaches, migraines, and sinus issues, Aleve is the only thing that works for me. For colds, I'll drink tea and maybe take some Nyquil at night.

I don't take medicine so I usually sleep it out, or lie in bed with a good horror movie.

Sleep it out unless things get really bad.

I usually work up a sweat at the gym. I go late at night to reduce the chance of passing my illness to others.
