I am beyond loosing patience with trying unsuccessfully to fight off whatever illness I may have (aside from diabetes). Being diabetic makes it that much harder to fight things off. I’ve become a total germ phobe (to no avail…). People just think I’m overreacting when they tell me that they or their kid is sick and I quickly move away from them. But knowing how difficult it has become to fight illness makes me run for the hills!
You have kindred spirit here, Brian. After months/years of chronic infections that just hang around and wear me out, I really do my best to avoid people with bugs, but they still find me. Not only is it frustrating and wearing but there’s also other costs - like lost work time, not being able to socialise as much, antibiotics, and then there’s the worry that the antibiotics will quit working. I could go on, but I know you understand and can relate. Thanks for sharing your gripe though, as it reminded me I’m not alone in dealing with this crap.
Hugs (virtual ones are virus and bacteria free!),
