I am so glad that I am feeling better today! Yesterday was awful! I woke up with a stomach virus, then my body was weak. My family and I went to eat out, but I lost my appetite. Then my body got more weak, and I had a 101 fever yesterday evening. I basicly slept the day away, but I needed my rest. I am just glad that I am feeling better today! Yay!

What's with us getting a one day sickness though? I thought you would get sick, and it would last days, or weeks.

Here is a small list of Chronic "Long Term" illnesses:

Acute Leukaemia
Mental handicap
Cerebral Palsy
Mental Illness (in a person under 16)
Cystic Fibrosis
Multiple Sclerosis
Diabetes Insipidus
Muscular Dystrophies
Diabetes Mellitus
Spina Bifida
Conditions arising from the use of Thalidomide

Short term illnesses can be the result of bacterial, or viral infections (common colds) and the immune system does what it does best in trying to combat them, people with chronic illnesses usually don't return to completely normal health. The illness does not go away, even when the symptoms are controlled.

Glad to hear that you are feeling better!
Be glad that your sickness has been short termed, long term illness is the worst!

What's worse for a long term sickness? But why is it that I have short term sickness? What about recovering from an operation? I don't think I will ever have one though. But just asking.

Managing your diabetes will help your body fight off an illness better, and help your body to heal from surgery, high blood glucose levels slow down your healing process.
Any long term illness puts a serious strain on your immune system as it tries to analyze what is going wrong within the body and tries to correct it.

Diabetes, surgery and healing:

I hope that this answers some of your questions!
