this time i didn't get the flu but i got what i guess is called malaise.i just was tired all over. the temperature being so low hasn't helped any either.. i spent my time huddled under a fleece blanket, denim comforter and an old quilt. i kept a space heater by the bed, using the timer function so it would only work for 4 hours at a time.
i have a couple of suggestions for staying well. they may be useful for you:
- wash your hands frequently. i personally don't believe in hand sanitizer because i believe that the body needs to fight some on it's own. hand sanitizer prevents the body from building up immunity. THIS IS MY PERSONAL OPINION, NOT MEDICAL FACT! i only use hand sanitizer when there are no washing facilities available, it's better than nothing.
- eat wholesome food. you can't thrive on a diet of crap. if you can't afford good food, don't be ashamed to apply for food stamps or WIC. it's paid out of tax dollars YOU paid in, so why not get something out of it? don't let selfish pride get in the way of getting the nourishment you need!
- STAY AWAY FROM SICK PEOPLE! 'nuff said.
