    I got sick the first 3 years. I really think it was from the kids because I never got sick before. I have a flu shot every year now and this year I've not been sick. ( A sinus infection but I don't think that was from the kids.)

    I never get sick. I don't know why: I have few obviously good habits.

    I feel like I've been sick at least once a week lately. I'm on my way to urgent care shortly...

    I don't share my own supplies with students. I keep a separate set of supplies (stapler, tape, etc.) for them and they're not allowed to touch mine. I don't share pens or pencils with them either.

    Whenever I feel myself starting to get a little sick, I use my neti pot once or twice a day for the next week. Since I've started using it, I haven't gotten as sick for as long. In the past I used to get slammed with a sinus infection, bronchitis, and/or (usually and) pharyngitis. Since I started using the neti pot, the worst I get is a two-day case of the sniffles. I only wish I had started using it sooner.

    I started carrying around a pencil today! Luckily it's been chilly so I was wearing a sweater with a pocket to hold it in.

    Right after posting in this thread about how I haven't been sick in many months, I came down with a bad cold! Go figure.

    Some antimicrobials do not allow for resistance if they kill it physically and not chemically.. i just feel that alchohol dries the skin out and only works until its dry which is about 15 seconds.
