Hi!


I'm sick. *cough* *cough*. So I figured I'd ask about how everyone else is doing! :-)

Ah Rain, I hope you're feeling better soon!

How are you feeling health wise today? - Just fine, in fact.



When is the last time you were sick? - Near the end of August.

How did you make yourself feel better? - I went to the doctor and got the anti-biotics I needed to deal with the infection I had. Right away I went, too, I might add, because I knew what it was, and that only medication would deal with it. Which it did.



What do you do to try to "stay healthy" (well not sick, lol)? - Among other things, I am very careful when I am out doing things, like grocery shopping, or having taken the bus or tram somewhere, to wash my hands as soon as I get to where I am going and can do so. I don't touch my face our my mouth with my hands until I've washed them, or eat anything till I've washed my hands. Infections germs are spread so easily from our hands, and honestly, this simple practice has really helped to cut down on the number of colds and the flu I've had in the last ten years or whenever it was I started doing this.

I also drink a lot of water, try and eat healthily, exercise and pay attention to my health in general, without being obsessed with it. OH and I get the flu shot every year, that's coming up soon.

How are you feeling health wise today? Great, I plan on staying this way.

When is the last time you were sick? Memorial Day weekend, ugh that was awful!

How did you make yourself feel better? I was out of it, so who knows.

What do you do to try to "stay healthy" (well not sick, lol)? Eat organically, loads of fresh fruits and veggies, and hand sanitizer to boot. Hugs

Get well soon, Rain! I'm sending you some positive vibes - hope it helps.

How are you feeling health wise today?
I am feeling well, thank you.

When is the last time you were sick?
A few months ago. I had the flu.

How did you make yourself feel better?
Lots of rest and took my meds for once.

What do you do to try to "stay healthy" (well not sick, lol)?
I eat well, try to get enough sleep, try to move/exercise when possible. I laugh a lot, and try to see the bright side or at least some sort of redeeming side to a difficult situation. I remember to breathe! And I surround myself with really nice people.

I try to take vitamins as well. Do you notice any difference when you take them and don't?

Wow, that's awesome that you haven't been really sick in years. I seem to get sick more often when up here at college, and even compared to when I worked at the daycare... actually, I was never sick when I worked at the daycare. :-/
