My company prorates sick time. Since I started after July 1, I was given 20 hours of sick time.
I've used 24. It's not December yet. I am due for a million more colds.
Any ideas on how to not get sick? Some kinds of sick I can't control much, but the other kinds ... what to do.
-- sleep more, and regularly
-- keep drinking 3-4 liters of water a day
-- keep eating lots of vegetables and fruits
-- keep taking vitamins
-- keep using the Neti pot
-- keep drinking echinacea tea
What else, what else? Wash my hands every ten minutes? I do wash them often and well. I did work in food service; I know what the hand washing is all about.
As for allergy flare-ups ... I guess I can attack dust and mold a bit more vehemently. I guess? I guess so.
-- start using my humidifier at night
-- wash all linens once a week
-- purchase and use mattress cover and pillow covers
Migraines, well, I really can only sleep regularly and not get stressed. Sounds fine to me. A bit complicated, though, by living.
-- exercise more?
-- lower my levels of chronic fatigue and cortisol?
Out of options. I am a sick girl. I am sad about all this and a bit confused. Please lend me your ideas, friends. Please.
