Sep 6, '10I 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
Sep 9, '10The 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.
Sep 9, '10Welcome 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!
