Living On Oxygen for Life
That’s right… the sick season begins. I sure hope everyone has got their flu shot, pneumonia shot and now the pharmacy is even offering the Shingles shot. What the heck??? What if you have never even had Chickenpox yet? I’ve never had chickenpox. My two sisters have. I guess I was lucky that way. I still remember my mother telling not to go in my sisters’ room because they were sick. I was soooo bored!
Last weekend, K and I took his mom and his aunt to the airport. His aunt was coughing in my van and I was really nervous about what she could have. Do you ever get that way around someone who is coughing? With breathing problems, I react to people who seem sick by becoming instantly alert and analyzing the symptoms of someone who might be coughing. I even hold my breath if they cough around me and then I make a run for it! Seriously! I am out the door! See ya because I don’t want to be sick too.
Unfortunately, I was stuck in the van with all of us and I was secretly praying the whole time that she only had allergy problems. *please, please, please!* Hey, they do have allergy issues in the family. The problem that I have now is that K texted me from work stating that he is sick. UGH! Double crap!
I have not had my flu shot yet.. I plan to get it next week when I go in for my annual physical. K has not had his flu shot yet either. At least I feel fine and I plan to keep feeling well. I ran to the pharmacy to pick up what my pharmacist recommended for K to take. She said Zyrtec-D. So I picked up some of that in the generic form which is outrageously expensive for over-the-counter medicine and then I also got some other stuff as a back up. Every now and then K and I have strange reactions… as in when we sleep or get jittery during the day… when we take certain sinus medications. It’s good to have a few choices. I don’t want him wigged out at work. haha! That would not be good!
Take care of yourself. Be proactive. You know what the saying of “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” by Benjamin Franklin means, right?
