Everybody can fall ill with any disease.
Fortunately, only cold and flu are quite frequent in our city among infectious
illnesses. They are rather easy for the modern medicine and various pills can
help you a lot in overcoming this trouble. But, of course, being sick isn't a
pleasant way of spending your time. In such situation friend's participation in
this trouble can encourage you, give you moral support and even can make
yourself feel better. That's why you always should visit your sick friends. You
must remember that tomorrow this illness may happen with you.
I always try to follow this rule. Fortunately, my friends don't fall ill
frequent. But I remember such case that happened about 12 months ago. One of my
best school friends had fallen ill with hard form of flu. Soon I went to his
place to see him. I took some things that, as I was expecting, were interesting
for him. Among them I brought a videocassette with best game moments of National
Basketball Association. He was very glad for this present and soon we both were
enjoying the outstanding games of the strongest basketball league in the world.
Then I told him all last school news and everything about the material we had
passed when he was absent. Then we tried to entertain ourselves and started to
solve crosswords in the newspapers, to watch TV set, so we began to do all that
everybody makes when he doesn't know what to do. To my surprise, I lost the
feeling of time and there was deep evening, when I understood, that it was a
time to go to the home. When I was leaving for the home, my friend promised that
he would be all right soon and he kept his word. In a two days he came to school
and started to study various subjects with new energy. Sometimes a little
interval is useful for a person.
Modern medicine helps us a lot in a illness treatment. It also gives us many
advises of how not to fall ill. Please follow these recommendations, and don't
