you're sick? Or is there something wrong with me? 

It's 4:40 am and I am up with a bad cough, sore throat, and congestion. I feel like crap and want some cold medicine but I'm stuck here with four sleeping children bc DH works third shift. DH will not be home from work until like 10. I really want to call my mom and have her bring me some cold medicine, soup, and orange juice. :( but I'm not going to.I don't want to wake her up and risk me getting her sick with her health being a roller-coaster lately. 

So yeah, I'm 26 years old and when I'm sick I like cold meds, soup, orange juice, and my MOMMY!!!

No.
I keep meds on hand in case of something like that. my dh works nights also so its either that or suffer.
But I'm the type that just wants to be left alone when sick.
Hope you feel better soon.

Yes. It seems like only my Mom knows how to take care of me when I'm sick. Although my dh try's really hard to help.

Nope. I don't want her anywhere near me when I'm sick.

I hope you feel better, being sick sucks.

Nope! My mom never took care of me when I was little, I don't expect her to now...

Yes exactly! And she keeps the kids occupied and quiet.

No. My mom never took care of me when I was sick. I had strep throat for 2 weeks before she finally took me to the doctor. I was senior in high school though. I didn't have a car. She was my ride.

2 weeks with strep throat?! I've had strep before that would have been terrible! When I was younger if I coughed or said "ouch" I was taken to the doctor.

Yes, I still want my mommy. Of course she has been gone for 21 years, so that might have something to do with it.

Yes but my mom has never been a great mother. When Anjali is sick I spoil her rotten.
