My kids are sick :( Sickness Vocabulary

One of the hardest things about travel is sickness.

Last Saturday, Maddox started to complain about his throat hurting and before you know it all my 3 kids were with fevers, two of them throwing up. Needless to say, it’s been a LONG week with little sleep. We saw a doctor but it’s just a virus so we have to wait it out.

Ivory is completely better, but Kai and Maddox still have bad coughs. I’ve been taking so many supplements, but I can tell my immune system is low. I’ve tried to rest as much as possible this week.

I thought I would take the time to teach you a few expressions you can say when talking about sickness:

I’m under the weather.

Definition: I’m not feeling well

Example: I can’t come to your party tonight because I’m under the weather.


I caught a bug.

Definition: I am sick

Example: I won’t be coming in to work tomorrow. I caught a bug.


I have come down with something.

Definition: I am sick

Example: I have come down with a cold.


I am as sick as a dog.

Definition: I am VERY sick

Example: I talked to John on the phone and he is sick as a dog.


4 things to say to someone who IS sick:

  1. Get well soon
  2. I hope you feel better
  3. I’m sorry, that sucks, feel better soon. (informal)
  4. Is there anything I can do for you? Sending my love. (To a family member or good friend)

 

Thanks for learning with me! If you are sick or your friend is, I hope you feel better πŸ˜‰
