Questions from Under the Covers

Questions from Under the Covers


For years, I prided myself on never taking a sick day. What I didn’t realize was that, even though I tried not to breathe on students or colleagues, I was spreading my nasty germs.


Now, recognizing the effect stress has on my immune system, I’m home today. For four days, I have been sniffling, coughing, and filled with the chills. Plus, I’m exhausted!


So, I wonder . . .


Why don’t my dogs catch this cold?

Can dogs get pink eye?


Do I have the energy to get out of bed and turn up the heat?


Will a shower make me feel better?


Is Nana right? If a fever is less than 101, is it friendly?


Do the dogs know that I’m sick?


Why am I so tired?


Why don’t I want to drink coffee when I’m sick?
