10 Tips to Get You Through Cold and Flu Season

It’s that time of year when everyone starts to get sick and pass around their cold and flu germs. Having a chronic illness means that your immune system is already compromised, which makes picking up other people’s winter illnesses harder to avoid. However, you don’t have to lock yourself away until spring, just heed some basic advice on how to keep those nasty germs at bay.

1. Get a Flu Shot

    This is not helpful for most of us with FMS, who are on disability (don’t work around others), are unable to rest/sleep well (due to our sx) as well as exercise (to the point of sweating) on a regular basis. I was hoping the article would provide ways to enhance immune system (if possible) or added ways to prevent germs other than the standard use of antibacterial agents and washing hands. While these reminders are important, those of us with chronic illnesses need additional preventative health measures. This time of year heightens our anxiety mainly due to others bringing home potential viruses, or the few times we are among others in the community, that we will acquire an illness. Not meant to be a criticism, but, rather, a reality.
