First of all, have you had your flu shot this year?
are you there?
n i havent....havent had one in years
that would be my first recommendation
as a health care provider we get them every year
and that's very helpful for us
ok with my next paycheck
but, aside from the flu shot there are things you can do to minimize your chances of getting sick
most colds (viruses) are trasmitted by airborne (droplet) routes.....
so making sure your students know to sneeze or cough into a tissue or into their arm is the first thing
this will help you and help the other students too
to see why this is so important.....
stand by... one minute....
i can do that
THIS IS A BIT GOOFY, BUT IT MAKES THE POINT
was hospitalized during student teaching but it had nothing to do with them....dont want to miss anymoretime.....with a new group of scholars now
as you can see, when you sneeze you put, into the air, millions of droplets and milliions of, if you are sick, virus particles
you are a very dedicated teacher
to ask this question
which is great
my dad taught for 40 years
the last think you can do, and perhaps the most important is to keep hand sanitizer at the ready
well actually i am just an aide now second graders...but will be looking for my own room soon
wash your hands with soap and water after touching your students or their clothing
and if you can't use the soap and water
use the sanitizer
regarding your last.... teacher's aide's are invaluable
good for you
teach your class about how to cough and sneeze to minimize spread of infection
and practice VERY good hand washing and, absent soap and water and sink, use the hand sanitizer
many illnesses are spread hand to mouth
so this will give you added protection
I am standing by....
ok i can do all that
that will cut your chances of getting sick down quite a bit
it can never be zero unfortunately
but this is the best you can do
along with getting good rest
and some doctors would say,
take some vitamin C supplements
though the science behind this is weak at best
exactly......no more hospitals for me either the hardest part was being away from my scholars
for four days
did you have to be admitted to the hospital?
yeah iv antibiotics for severe infection in the face....
went home with an oral one....two days after finishing that endedup with a delayed raction to it
glad you are better
doubt you got that from your kids
was is something called 'periorbital cellulitis'?
i know it wasnt
cellulitus,gingivitus, sinusituswas my diagnosis
do you know what the diagnosis was??
yes i posted it
so you could well have been set up for the infection by being in the classroom
usually follows either sinus allergies or a cold
bacteria come in as the immune system is knoecked down
and go crazy
sorry you got so sick
but following the above details
can help you from getting sick again
i didnt ferl any symptomd there no pressure no stuffinesd nosneezing....i hsve bad allergied so no stranget to sinusitus
do you have a good doctor?
have you been seen by an allergist or an ENT doctor?
not at this time.....but am looking for one....i just visit thd clinic whEn needed right now....get who is avsilable
so going forward
good idea to get an allergist or ent doctor to look at you and try to mimimize your allergic symptoms and prevent further sinus infections
do you have more questions for me about this subject?
i can go back to my ent ihad in the padt but haventhad any major pproblems with mysinuses in a long timee
but getting hospitalized for a sinus infection is very rare
i have nothing further
so it may be a good thing to get done this year
then I hope this has been helpful to you
if it has
please leave positive feedback
and stay well
it wzd more tban sinus....it was alsocellulitus
and thanks for doing what you do
that's why I asked about 'periorbital cellulitis'
because we DO admit people for this and it's usually from a sinus infection
your welcome and thanks fir what you do
and it gets in around the eye
