I am not here to advocate everyone getting vaccinated. I did not trust it. However it did not matter. Before it was even readily available here my Son
came home with a headache and cough. I run a business and can not afford to get sick. I confined him to his room with bed rest and fluid. It did not
take any argument he slept almost the whole time. Despite the good heath of my wife and I, sanitizing our hands taking zinc, 5000 iu of vitamin D, C
and other immune boosters, we got sick. I was first my wife second. We can down hard on Saturday and it is not fun. I am still weak and break out in
cold sweats just from typing.
I can tell you we have had illness in this household before, washed our hands, kept the sick child in their room with TV, food and fluids and got away
fine. Sometimes not even in there room and never get sick. This time, we got it bad. After going through this I am thinking maybe I should have gotten
vaccinated, however I keep reminding myself there was no real time to do so.
So my point to you all here is not to say trust the government, or trust the medical company. It is to say this is nasty, and does hit you hard even
if you are careful, take vitamins and are healthy. So I am saying if this keeps up I would expect to get sick this fall/winter and be out 3-5 days.
Most of you probably will. I think the vitamins still helped us being former smokers and not needing medical assistance. Get lots of fluids and start
saving money now if you do not have sick time. I definitely would not push yourself too hard if you get this. I was feeling a tad better yesterday.
Went to the store to get cough suppressant. Just that trip brought me back to a fever and going to sleep at 8:00 pm (I usually am up till 1:00 am.) I
am better today but still pretty weak.
