I’m currently sick right now, and I feel terrible. I just want to sleep all day and cry about the homework I have to finish by tonight. My brother randomly just brought a lot of snacks including hot cheetos, lays barbeque chips, kit kat, twix, gummy worms, and hersheys chocolate. This is probably some 6 year old’s dream, unfortunately I can’t enjoy ANY of it because I’m sick. So I have compiled a list of the good and the bad parts of being sick, let’s go!

Being Sick Sucks and here’s why:

  • you can’t taste anything, therefore you can’t enjoy any of the good food you eat during the time you’re sick
  • loss of appetite, especially when people buy you amazing food
  • you feel nauseous during the worst times(in school, work, etc)
  • you have to be conservative with your coughs and sneezes, so you’re constantly battling whether you should hold your cough or sneeze in
  • you have to hold your cough or sneeze in so people won’t be as annoyed as you
  • you can’t eat dairy products because it worsens your mucus, that means ICE CREAM, CHEESE, MILK
  • the minute the cough drop goes away is the minute your throat starts feeling like a sandbox
  • you’re tired constantly, even if you got enough sleep
  • you need tissues by your side like an iv tube
  • you have to eat healthier
  • you have to force unnatural amounts of water down your system
  • you can’t breathe out of your nose
  • you don’t feel like doing anything and that means watching a movie
  • you can’t wear awesome clothes
  • for some reason you’re voice box is like “nah, not today or the next couple of days” next thing you know you sound like nasally 12 year old boy nervously asking a girl to the eighth grade dance
  • your ears are blocked for 10 years

Before you start boiling with anger from remembering these experiences, here are reasons why having the common cold can be somewhat okay.

  • you feel extra toasty warm when you drink tea
  • you can eat healthy food without being bothered because you can’t taste it(hooray!)
  • you can easily pretend you’re feeling so awful you can’t bother to make yourself some food, so you get your brothers to
  • when you actually need to go to the bathroom when you’re in school, teachers are way more lenient
  • people stay away from you
  • family members are nicer to you
  • people don’t bother you(this mostly applies to introverts)
  • you get to eat cough drops(maybe it’s just me, but I’m a fan of cough drops)

I’m feeling terrible and I’ll probably wake up the next morning feeling less terrible. I could have sped up this cold, but that means I have to eat healthy and stay away from junk foods, which is …no bueno for me. Happy sunday to all!
