With Fall upon us and seasonal allergies and colds going around...Crazymama wants to know:

{1} What is your feel better remedy when you are sick? 
I like to have a mug of hot chocolate. I also like to be alone when possible. I hate having kids hover over me when I'm sick. Sometimes I get to be a alone, sometimes I don't. Sometimes having my hubby there to let me cry or whine helps too. He's a good guy!

{2} When illness strikes, what is your policy on staying home from work, school or church with yourself and the family?
If the kids are feverish or puking, they are not allowed in daycare so I have to call in to work. I have no choice but it is completely understandable. I usually only call in sick for myself if I'm throwing up. P usually ends up going to church even if he has a little cold. E, on the other hand, gets kept home more often. Little ones like himself don't know how to keep their germs to themselves. I appreciate moms who keep their sick kids home so I try to reciprocate.

{3} What do you think is worse? Flu or cold?
That is a hard one. Usually the flu only lasts a few hours and then your done. But I hate throwing up! Colds can last several days. As much as I hate throwing up, I'll take flu because it leaves sooner.

{4} Flu shots? Do you get them? Have you yet?
I think I've only had one flu shot in my life. I really didn't see any difference. I do get my children the flu nasal mist though.

{5} When are are feeling down, what is your usual, go-to therapy? (retail therapy, exercise, comfort food, etc).
If I'm really down, all I want to do is sleep. It if is just minimal grumpiness or slightly depressed, I usually need to talk to either J or my mom. I do like to self-medicate with ice cream or sweets. I have to be careful with retail therapy because I can't afford to do that. :-)

I tend to want to be alone too. I end up getting annoyed by my family if they're bugging me.

I just want to veg and watch TV or read when I'm sick. I'm also not rich enough for retail therapy, so I usually go with ice cream. :)
