This is maybe the biggest downside to where I work. However much I may love those kids, they sure are snotty, sneezy, coughy, sniffy, vomity, and diarrhea-y (they kinda sound like the 7 dwarves).
I used to consider myself a relatively healthy person, that is if you disregard my battle with toxic shock and ARDS, a hospitalization for pneumonia, and living with lupus, but I sure have had my butt kicked by the evil little thing called the common cold. After being in the clinic for 3 winters, you would think I would have gained a little immunity (well maybe I have...I'v only been sick 3 times this winter compared with at least 4 or 5 in years past).
Well such is life....but I will continue to do my best to avoid those evil little germs (not that I already am not....
