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?
