The weather has been pretty crazy lately. Some days it has been so cold you can’t feel your face and others have been spring jacket kind of days. According to my mom “eso es lo que enferma” or “that’s what makes you sick”. In the past 4 days, everyone in my house has been plagued with a horrible cold. It started with my daughter who got it from a kid at daycare and it has spread to my husband and just got my son. People at work seem to be dropping like flies too. I am the last one standing!
I’m not sure how true the belief that you get a cold because of the weather is, but I do know that I have to do whatever I can not to catch it! What is my first step? “Librarian” how and why we catch colds, how to prevent them and some common remedies?
The library has excellent resources to answer all of my queries.
I found books about natural remedies, the course of the common cold and what virus it stems from. Did you know there are over 100 viruses that cause the common cold?
I also used the library’s databases and found great information on the common cold from the Mayo Clinic. I found out there is no actual cure!
WebMD has tips and tricks to help avoid catching a cold.
I’ll see you all in the Spring!
