I’m so tired of being sick, and I am calling in the heavy guns to try to head off the next cold.
I have had four colds lasting about two weeks each in the last eight weeks. Basically I have been sick since school started. The kids bring home different germs from their classes, and I catch it all. My heart-transplant brother who is on immune-suppressive drugs has a stronger immune system than I do.
I was taking daily multi-vitamins and added in large amounts of Vitamin C, Echinacea tea and Airborne each time I felt an illness coming on. Now I am adding probiotics and Elderberry to the mix.
I wash my hands and keep hand sanitizer in my car and my purse. I wipe down my computer after the kids use it, and I just added the disposable hand towels to the bathroom so I’m not picking up germs after I wash.
I am also trying to add in more servings of fruits and vegetables. I also bought some of that Acai juice that is supposed to be a super food.
Did other moms get sick when the kids went back to school and started sharing germs? What are you doing to keep from getting sick? What should I try?
