I am tired of going out in public and seeing some poor person sick. You can pick them out in the crowd. They look ill with red faces and runny noses and here they are in the crowd sharing there germs with everyone. They don’t fool me they are sick and they don’t really feel well enough to be out in public but for whatever reason there they are sharing their germs. If people would just stay home when they are sick then there would be less sickness. It is my new pet peeve to see these people out in public.
My son has a virus right now so I took him to see the doctor. He is pretty sick but does not have strep so according to my doctor it is ok to send him to school since he is only contagious if he should sneeze or cough on someone. Honestly how is he going to go through the day without coughing? I hear that if you cough in your hand and touch a surface that the virus can stay alive on that surface for a day. So anyone who touches that surface will get your virus. And they now have whatever virus you have. Does this make sense to anyone else?
If you are sick stay home and keep your germs to yourself. The state has made some ridiculous law now that our kids can only be absent for 10 days a year. How do I know how many days my son will be sick? You can’t predict such a thing. The doctor my son saw gave us a list of medicine that he should take to be more comfortably. I don’t remember the list but it included Tylenol, ibuprofen, and cough medicine. These medicines do nothing to keep the people around you from getting what you have. So basically you are getting medicated so you feel like you can go out in public and get everyone else sick. That logic makes me so mad.
What happened to the days when you were allowed to stay home and get well if you were sick? I don’t see anything wrong with a person staying home if they are not well. For one thing the person isn’t feeling well enough to be out in public and for another thing you are sharing your germs with everyone in your vicinity when you go out in public. Why do our children have to be forced to go to school and share there germs with everyone? It only makes everyone get sick.
I think it is time that we start to reverse the thinking that it is ok to go out in the public when you are sick. I don’t think we should medicate ourselves up so we can be with other people when we are sick. I think if you are sick you should be allowed to stay home and recover without having to have the pressure of having to be out in public. If you are sick it makes sense to just stay home and get well.
