How can I play my guitar to create the mood of sickness? I'm trying to achieve something similar to "Black Hole Sun" by Soundgarden. Any tips for creating this kind of mood? Everything I try sounds too relaxed and sad. I want more of a "sickly" mood than sad.

It's not the notes, it's the tone. Get some effects going for a sickly sound, maybe a delay with some heavy reverb? Chorus would probably get you going as well if it's really wide and soupy.

I have the tone and effects down, I have a Vox ToneLab LE... I try to play something sick/ill-sounding but it comes out depressing/sad

Try playing it to a backing track aswell. If you're just doing it by yourself, it will sound pretty much wrong. I worked out a solo (I'm too manly for tabs) the other day and it sounds wrong when not played to the song/backing track.
