When You're Sick, Do You....

When you're sick, do you....Get this crazy urge to clean?

I have a pretty bad cold, but whenever I am sick I can only sit for about an hour before I get up and start cleaning!! My main thing is my floors...I can't help but steam all the floors and carpets in my house.

Am I alone here?

Nope, I never, ever get the urge to clean when I'm sick.

 Part of me wants to sleep, but when I lay down my head starts to pound :/

I know the feeling.  Does the steam from cleaning the floors help?  Sometimes I sleep w/ extra pillows, propping me up in a sitting position.  Hope you feel better.  :-(

I know exactly what you mean. Even though I am not feeling good, I still feel like I want to cook , clean, and everything else I find to do. My husband says I can't seem to keep still . I may take a quick nap( if I am able) but then I am  up again finding something else to do.

 It's nice to know I'm not alone! :)

I steamed my floors and I'm finally sitting but I still want to do laundry or something LOL

My son asked me if I ever diagnosed with ADHD? When I was pregnant with my last child, I was suppose to be on complete bed rest but I still couldn't keep still. I tried, but it was so hard. I know it's easier said then done but try to get as much rest as you can. Get yourself a nettie pot if you are congested and drink hot green tea or lemon and honey tea. Elderberry Syrup is good for building up your immune system. You can find it at CVS. I hope you feel better.

Thank you SO much!!! I have been taking raw apple cider vinegar shots, drinking warm water with lemon, and black and green tea. I will try the soup! Thank you for the well wishes and advice!! :)

I will sleep but than I will wake up and start with the bathroom and go through the whole house- so no one else gets it. I think its to avoid it going around and round .. feel better if your still sick...
