@stonepixie yay!!

@Chessca_H Yeah, I'm just too lazy to move when I'm sick. The only time I move is to use the bathroom, or get more food.

Re: [CHAT] Coping with illness

Great replies everyone, so good to see you talking about self care!

Sickness (in both yourself and the people around you) can make you feel pretty down, so what do you think are the best ways to look after your mental health while coping with illness?

If it's someone else who is sick. I know that being there for them is the most important thing. And to also not to make them feel guilty for needing you to help them.
If it's yourself, then remaining positive, or at least, not letting yourself be consumed by all those negative emotions, is very important. And making sure you have people near you to support you.

Just remind yourself that you are sick so you can't do things that you would normally do and that you are taking care of your body. Just remember to challenge all your negative thoughts. One can still practice mindfulness.

I like to remind myself that I'm ok and will get through it. I Facebook/message friends when I feel lonely. And make sure I eat well. And keep taking my medication.
