Please, No Pictures.

Living in a residence hall is taking a toll on my immune system. I’ve officially been sick more often than I’ve been well in the past two months. Ugh.

“Are you taking vitamins?”
Yes.

“Are you exercising?”
Yes.

“Are you eating right?”
YES.

There’s only so much a girl can do when living with 350 other people, using the same elevator, touching the same hand rails, opening the same doors. Agh!

But this is what I signed up for. Sometimes, building community isn’t all fluffy and sunshiney. Sometimes, I have to remember that I’m hopefully making a difference in someone’s day or life, even when I’m resentful that I caught another cold.

This isn’t a field of perfection, and my future career doesn’t come without its challenges. It just happens that my biggest challenge at the moment is how to keep myself well short of bathing in Lysol and rolling around in a bubble. 🙂

    So, I have to mention that I work in a hospital and there’s sick people EVERYWHERE. What I’ve been told, is that if you use a humidifier at night, especially when it’s colder out, it really cuts down on getting colds. I have not gotten sick yet this cold season…and I usually get 2 colds a year!

    Then again, you never know…there ARE germs everywhere and sometimes you body just breaks down and gets that cold. Hope you feel better.

    Hand sanitizer?

    Mask? (ROFLMAO)

    Occillaoccinum?

    Airborne?

    Unfortunately a mask and hand sanitizer are your two best bets 😛

    Good luck!
