post nasal drip
sore throat
cough

day 1 of a cold/flu

I managed to keep the germs away during chemo, no cold or flu last year
so I started back to work 2 weeks ago, I am a teacher
didn't even help to lysol my entire surroundings everyday
washed my hands with good old soap and hot water so much they are red and raw

stay aware my chemo buddies, I fear the bugs this year for you!

    awwww the drips
    Awwhhh Patteee....that's the pits. I am so sorry you have caught a bug. I too am a teacher but when I started this merry-go-round I was able to retire. It seems almost impossible to avoid those germs when you are in the class-room.

    All the best to you and chicken soup, and rest and socks on feet and plenty of fluids....:)

    Get well and stay strong

    Patteee :(
    I'm sorry Patty. I hope you get to feeling better.

    We have to wade through so many bad days to enjoy just a few it seems sometimes. That's why we recongize them and enjoy them when we can.

    I'm sure you are some kind of teacher and your kids are lucky to have someone with your wisdom :)

    Get well soon

    My prescription
    I'm sorry you're feeling so icky. My prescription for that kind of nonsense is hot tea with a teaspoonful of honey. Hope you're better soon!
