    Kala’s column resonated with me as well. Ugh. I’m not a fan of this time of year in that respect. Personally, I’ve found that if I’m not sick within 48 hours, I’m safe. If I know they are sick ahead of time, I wait 7-10 days from their earliest symptoms before seeing them again.

    Fortunately, I’ve been healthy so far this. Like Kala, I usually speak to my doctor over the phone and they choose an antibiotic (if it’s needed) based on what I or my mom tells them is going on. This has been a good system for us. It means I can stay home where it’s warm and there aren’t a bunch sick people who give me something worse. My doctors all know how easily I get sick so try to avoid making me come to the office, and I avoid the hospital like it’s the plague.
