Cold Season Has Arrived + Signs of H1N1

Friday, October 2, 2009

Being a frequent hand washer as well as not working in a closed in office environment, I was surprised to come down with a bad cold. I have been out and about and hear people talking about family members and themselves getting over the flu, as well as hearing people coughing in stores.

Both my daughters work part time in daycares and say some kids have some real bad coughs. There is so much sickness spread in daycares. I never had to have my kids in daycare when I worked when they were younger.I always worked opposite shifts as my ex, and no sitter was required.

Erika now has a sore throat and I can see me having to buy more cough syrup soon with the two of us with our coughs. Picked up more kleenex today too.

I haven't really thought too much about the H1N1 virus, but have been reading about it.It's important to know the signs:
-it will develop within 1-3 days after you are exposed to it
-you will have body aches and feel fatigue
- symptoms also  include headaches, nausea, sore throat, coughing, diarrhea, or even vomiting.You may or may not get all of these
-although there has been some deaths, most cases have been mild

Stay healthy!
