Hospitals used to make me feel more sick that I am, so usually I take medicine after I visit chemist.

I just keep wondering which prepositions come after "sick"
sick of, to, with, in, for
Can you help me? What are their meanings?

Hi Tysm,

 

Good question! Yes, it's important to be aware that some words can go with different prepositions to give different meanings. A good dictionary can usually tell you what they mean. In the case of sick, here are a few examples:

  • I'm sick with the flu. This means I'm ill. I've got the flu.
  • I feel sick from eating too many sweets. This means eating too many sweets made me feel ill.
  • I'm sick of cleaning the house. This means I've cleaned the house a lot and I don't want to do it anymore.

 

Hope that helps!

I don't like going to hospital.I hate the smell of medicine.As soon as I enter hospital ,I can smell it.I'm also afraid of injection.When I was young,whenever I need to take injection,I always run around hospital screaming and crying.My dad had to catch me.When I become older,I can't run anymore I used to do.I have a sweet tooth.Therefore I need to go to dentist frequently.Last year I had got a very bad toothache.It really drives me crazy.I can't stand the sound of drill bcoz It reminds me of dentist.I really really hate that sound and smell.

When I'm not well, a doctor prescribes for medicine, which is good; I don't like sitting at a wating room in the hospital.

I don't like go to the hospital, because I have to wait at least 3 hours in the public health. Nowadays I pay for a appointment. I took many injections when I get a cold.
