      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

What do you do, if anything, to avoid getting sick from co-workers, etc, this time of year? Or do you just see it as an "occupational hazard?"

During my years working with the surgeons I received a memo from the CDC about how to prevent/treat symptoms of H1N1 flu, an epidemic at the time. I've hung onto it all these years, amended it a bit and often pass it around. I have friends who work in early childhood ed, public school teachers and even my students while I was library services supervisor....I was in a new school last year, kept hand sanitizer & tissues on  my desk to help my students learn to manage illness ...I wasn't sick at all last year, very unusual in a new environment.

I try to eat a lot of fruit & take Emergen C which comes in little packets of raspberry, tangerine, blueberry, etc.  It tastes pretty good.  You an take it everyday for immune support,  or if I feel like I'm getting like a sore throat or runny nose; I take 1 packet & mix with water or juice 1 time a day and I feel better the next day or 2.  If you stop it before it gets you, you are good.

Sounds like some good ideas, ladies!

@All - Anyone else?
