Topic: Feeling Under the Weather

Dialogue 1

Lucy: Hi, Tom. You look exhausted today. Are you feeling okay?
Tom: No, I think I might be coming down with something. I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather.
Lucy: Oh no, that isn’t very good. You may take some time off work and rest for a few days.
Tom: Yeah, that’s probably a good idea. I feel so run-down and lacking in energy all the time.
Lucy: Have you seen a doctor yet? They might be able to give you something to help get rid of your cold.
Tom: Not yet, but I will book an appointment later this afternoon. Hopefully, they can do something.
Lucy: Definitely. It’s important not to push yourself too hard when feeling sick. Take some time for yourself and focus on getting better.
Tom: Thanks, Lucy. I appreciate your concern.
Lucy: Of course. Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help out.
Tom: Will do. Thanks again.

Dialogue 2

Sophie: Hey, Sarah. You don’t look so good. Are you feeling okay?
Sarah: No, I’m not. I’ve been feeling under the weather for a few days now.
Sophie: Oh no! Have you seen a doctor or taken any medicine?
Sarah: Yeah, I took some paracetamol yesterday and rested all day in bed.
Sophie: Do you have symptoms of flu or cold?
Sarah: No, not really. Just feeling sick and tired all the time. And a lack of energy to do anything.
Sophie: Maybe you should take another day off work and rest again today.
Sarah: Yeah, that’s a good idea. The boss won’t be happy, though.
Sophie: Don’t worry about it. Your health is more important than your job. It’s better to recover fully before going back to work.
Sarah: That’s true. Thanks for understanding, Sophie.
Sophie: Of course. Let me know if you need anything.
Sarah: Will do. Thanks again.
