Sick Season

Post by Goofydoofy » Tue Apr 24, 2018 2:39 pm

If you have the chance to live in a plastic bubble, I highly suggest you do it. I wish I did. Since November, I've been toying with upper respiratory infection. It would come and go for a day or two and then fine for a week or two and repeat. We'll about five weeks ago, I ended up with a full blow case of the flu, which promptly turned in to pneumonia. Got antibiotics and such and after ten days it was gone. Two days later, it was back. Not pneumonia, the antibiotics killed that, but full blow cold or flu again. Got different antibiotics and steroids and I'm about 3/4 through that. I spent the last 42 hours in bed with very little food or drink. But, it seems, I may be on the mend. Let's see what the weekend brings.

So, in conclusion, outside is bad.

Hope you are mending. But do take in fluids if you can, warm tea... orange juice.. your body needs the liquid to fight infection.

Something I learned from people when I joined Mensa...50mg zinc per day with food or milk will boost your immune system. Been doing it for more than 10 years now...I almost never get sick anymore.

I never joined Mensa, nor have I ever taken 50mg zinc each day, but I do consume great quantities of potato chips. Maybe that's what is keeping me so darned healthy!! ;)
