In Sickness and In Health

I’m a girl who has something to do planned for every single day of the week. But when I’m sick, all I want to do is stop and disappear from the world. 

Now, I’m a person who cares a lot about others. I always ask if people have a ride home, and text my friends to make sure they got home safe after a late night. Whenever people are over, I ask them if they ate dinner yet. When I’m volunteering at the hospital, I enjoy spreading warm blankets over the patients and just talking to them. If I become a nurse in the future, caring for people will literally be my job. 

But you want to know something?

Even though I’m a “Type A” personality, who achieves everything for herself, and constantly does things for others, I like being taken care of too. 

When I’m sick, I really wish that I could lay in bed and have someone feed me soup. I wish that someone could cut up fruit for me, give me medication, make sure I have enough water. I want someone to check my temperature and tell me to rest more. I want someone to call in at work so they can spend the day with me instead. I want to know, without a doubt, that this person will go out of their way to make sure I feel better.

It’s something that I really want, but I haven’t really experienced.

So reader, now you know my secret. What’s something that you secretly wish for?
