Be prepared: Things to do When you are Sick in your Apartment
We all know that getting sick is definitely inevitable. We get sick even if we don’t want to be sick. Of course, catching some colds around you is uncontrollable. Getting sick is one of the facts of life – but the first time you’re sick in your apartment in Cebu can be a huge hassle. Well that, if you are not prepared.

Sometimes, getting sick is going to be a pain, especially when we are living alone in our apartment. There are no friends and/or families that you can call immediately whenever you are sick. That is why; there will always be a need for you to be prepared at all times, especially when you catch some colds.

Well, if you are one of those people who lives alone in their apartment, then here are some tips for you to be prepared when times like this strikes you anytime of the day. At least, you are being prepared, without worrying what to do next for you to be ok.


If you are leaving alone, you better have some stocks of medicine in your apartment. Of course, you should have at least some anti-allergies, medicines that are pain killer, and/or any other medicines that you think you might need it one day. You have to make sure that the medicine box that you have will not be empted for you not to panic or worry when you get sick or catch a cold. Also, when you prepare and have your medicine in your apartment, it is easier for you to get well, since you can immediately take some of those medicines.

First aid

There will be a lot of possibilities to happen inside and outside of your apartment. You don’t know and God forbid, you cut yourself with a knife or burn yourself with a boiling cooking oil while you are cooking your food. When that incident comes, you don’t have to worry about what to apply since you already have a lot of first aid stock in your apartment. You don’t have to worry when you cut yourself since you have a band aid ready for you. Of course, not just band aids but also, antibacterial like Neosporin or a different kind of antibiotic ointment to speed up the healing process and minimize the pain.

Sick foods

If you are sick, one of the things that you don’t like to have is eating too much of your food. However, even if you don’t like and feel like eating, you still have the need for you to eat. Well, it you like to get well soon, then you should also have some stock o sick foods like crackers, soup, and other foods that you want to eat for as long as it is a healthy food and can speeds up the healing process.


One way or another, there will always be a need for you to call someone for you to be taken good care of. Be it your family or friends. You don’t have to worry about them for as long as they have the time to be with you and take good care of you. Also, keeping up important contacts is necessary in case of emergencies.

Also, if you are using your mobile phone, you have to make sure that you still have an extra load for you to call them, since it will definitely be useless when you are unable to contact them if you don’t have any load at all.

Being prepared with at least everything is definitely a good thing to do. Of course, if you don’t want to sound silly when you have to call the doctor who will usually ask what is your temperature, then you better have your own thermometer. Not just that but also, you have to have some stocks of ice packs/heating pads, tissues, blankets and/or any other things that are useful and needed to you.
