    I never used to get sick until I had kids. Than it's like my immune system took a dive. Before than I could count on one hand all the times I remember being sick in my life. Well wasn't a long life. I had my first kid at 16 lol

    The second day of class of my first semester I sat next to a sick student. It was the first time I was in that class and I noticed about 3 minutes after sitting down how sick she was. I didn't want to embarass her by moving so I just sat there and tried to hold my breath....yeah....well....didn't work. I've been sick as a dog for the past week! I wouldn't have gone to clinicals the first week, but how would that have looked?!? Im sure Im the one everyone is trying to avoid now.

    Welcome to nursing school everyone! Over a period of 5 months (nov. to apr.) I had the flu 3 x's and caught a cold twice. I missed the maximum 2 clinical days during both semesters. I slept well, ate well, and washed my hands like a germ freak, but my immune system absolutely failed me. I even had both flu shots (annual + H1N1). Prior to nursing school I had the flu twice in my entire 30 years of life. Best of luck to everyone and hope that you get sick on a friday, so you have the weekend to recover!
