Always for me as I do not do sick well. So I get anxious and frustrated that I am not able to do what I normally do daily.
Once I feel better I can feel my spirits lift.

No, my Ap is not worse when i am sick- if you see my signature you will understand that i am physically, chronically ill on a daily basis and have been for nearly 15 yrs. I am so used to sickness being a way of life that my AP does not interfere. My AP has a mind of its own and will flare up in certain situations which ive leaned to manage as best i can, but im in and out of hospital, multiple surgeries etc and it doesnt phase me. of course i feel AWFUL when im really unwell, worse than usual, but it generally doesnt make me panic. I understand why it would for others though. i guess its a blessing to not have AP increase when im sick- as its basically a 24/7 situation, and i have come to accept that.
