It's that dreaded time of the year. Your body starts to ache. Your nose may start to run. Oh wait now it's your throat. It's on fire. In 2020 it is even worse. I mean now you have to check to see if you lost your sense of smell or taste. Are you running a fever. Getting sick this year is even worse.
It's never fun having the flu and especially in 2020 when everyone will just assume you have covid. You want to avoid that at all costs. So what can you do? Maybe you take extra vitamin C. Maybe you go and get the flu shot and again especially this year. It is one thing to get sick but something else to get the flu or even the virus.
Do you normally get a flu shot? I will be the first to say that I have not in years. I am pretty sure that I will be getting mine this year. I mean on top of concerns of getting the actual flu this year we also have to worry about covid too. All at the same time.
We will be getting to cold and flu season before long. This will be an unusual one this year. Is it a cold? Is it the flu? Or is it covid? How do we know which steps to take? I mean do we just ride it out like we would a cold?
It is so silly to me that this is the only time we are concerned so much about washing our hands. We have a cold and flu season every year. So it just makes sense that we should ALWAYS be concerned with washing up.
It seems like everyone is getting sick. First one person gets it. Then another. Finally another and it seems your whole department is down and out. What are some things we can do to avoid getting it in the first place?
I mean come on it's bad enough to get the flu once a year? Am I right? Have you gotten it yet? I think I did around New Year's. I say "I think" because that is what my daughter got diagnosed with when she returned home after Christmas.
It's that time of the year. You know the one where people are dropping like flies at work. Once one person get sick it ends up going around the office. So the best advice, of course, is to stay home if you are feeling under the weather.
