Sick at Home

What do you most like to do when you’re recuperating? And what do you most dislike doing when it’s someone else who’s sick?

George Goodwin Kilburne The NursemaidMyself, I like to watch the BBC miniseries of Pride and Prejudice while I recover, all bundled up and warm on the couch with a pot of tea to hand. When others are sick, it’s overhearing the movement of mucous that I can’t stand – it just gives me the creeps!
