Are we just a little paranoid about germs?
We have two people in the house with autoimmune disorders. My daughters work with students with autoimmune disorders and are exposed all the time to the nasty little germs. So we commit Lysolacide on the little buggers. We start from the top of the wall and work downwards covering all surfaces with a mist of disinfectant. This is a monthly routine as it seems someone always is fighting allergies, a cold, flu, or worse; right now it is strep x3. They are banished upstairs with their germs and the downstairs has been degermed for the moment.
Washing hands, using hand sanitizer between washings, Clorox wipes are our friend. And I always carry Kleenex. And when that doesn’t cut it the Lysol and bleach do.
We eat healthily and take multiple vitamins daily. We have a team of doctors who coordinate our care when germs slip through our disinfectant net. Really; a pulmonologist, cardiologist, orthopedic surgeon, eye specialists, dentists, psychiatrist, neurologist, physical, occupational, and speech therapist, and primary care physician makes us sound like hypochondriacs. The doctors love to see us coming “Ca-Ching!” money in the bank. But the little bugger germs don’t get a good stronghold on us.
