Human nature, or just me?

"Here and there, human nature may be great in times of trial, but generally speaking it is its weakness and not its strength that appears in a sick chamber."
- Jane Austen, Persuasion

I thought this quote was quite fitting for me today. I think I'm pretty good at holding up in stressful times, being the rock for people to lean on, or something like that. But when I am sick, no way! I am grumpy, moody, tired, sad, and all those wonderful feelings that drive people away. I definitely show my weaknesses when I'm sick! And my boys do too, they get so fussy and annoying. Anyone else get like this?

Absolutely. And not even when I'm sick. Sometimes its just when I feel a bit run down. I don't like me that way.
