With DH and I both sick these past few days it was easy to see that we face illness differently. He stays awake thru most of it, sitting up in his recliner. He doesn't have the appetite for regular meals and grazes throughout the day instead. Me, I'm a sleeper. I've been sleeping roughly 16 hours per days. I wake up for about two hours at a time, eat and try to get some things done and then go back to sleep for several more hours. So, are you awake through the misery or do you sleep it away?
