    No, I feel sick and grumpy. Then I look for someone to blame.

    If I have to call into a job, I feel guilty. I feel like I am letting them down. It's silly to feel that way though, because other employees have no problem calling in even when they don't need to do so.

    Only when my illness lets other people down. I feel bad that others have to adjust their schedules/work/activities because of it.

    No, I don't feel guilty because getting sick is not my own fault.   We could have caught it from anywhere including perhaps the cook at a restaurant sneeze on my meal without me knowing it.  These are things beyond our control.  So I not worry about it.

    I do feel guilty. In fact I just got over a cold that had me under the weather for four days, thanks to my hubby for bringing it home from work. I have so many chores to do everyday and those four days I just couldn't get anything done. The house just kinda fell apart and my daughter had to entertain herself because I was so tired. I know there's nothing I can do about it, but my mind keeps telling me I should take more vitamin C, blah blah blah. I'm my own worst enemy sometimes.

    No I do not feel guilty when I get sick with a flu or cold because it happens so infrequently (less than once per every few years).

    I do take it as a sign that my immune system has been compromised and work on boosting it back up to where it needs to be,

    We should feel guilty, it is a sign of weakness and frailty from our dependence on modern technology and mainstream pseudo medical science.  Humans have the capacity to be healthy without mainstream beliefs and alternative and western medicine.  I'm not allowed to have a cold or flu.  smile

    Well, I don't feel guilty when if I get sick, because it happens.  I do feel guilty though if I am not able to pull my load in my family.  If my loved ones have to pick up the slack because I'm sick, I feel kind of guilty for making them work harder.
