I've heard them all around me this weekend. Flu-sick sneezers and coughers at the office, daycare, shopping mall, grocery store, and gym. Avoiding the flu isn't as easy as one might think.
What can I do? Where can I go? Who do I call? Is there a help line?
I am about a week and a half away from heading to Mexico and it's very difficult to protect oneself from catching a virus. I am going to do everything in my power not to get sick. I for sure and going to avoid close contact with people who are sick. From late October to mid-March seems to be when the epidemic picks up. As far as everyone else, the only advice I can give is, "Proceed at your own risk!".
The last time I had the flu was about 6 or 7 years ago. A lady that I worked with sneezed in my face. I ended up sick as a dog and contracting a sinus infection. My mom thought it was tuberculosis. She's no doctor, but I thank her for the diagnosis.
When I leave work today I am going to stock up on hand sanitizers and take some meds just for the hell of it.
Mexico is in my sights. Not losing focus!
