not sick

Since late September I have been almost getting sick. Every time I take large doses of vitamin D (2 grams,) vitamin C (2 grams,) and echinacea/golden seal. Combined with a small amount of rest and I end up fending the sickness off.

But see, about every week or two this process repeats itself because I haven’t actually gotten sick and created an immunity to this particular strain. So today when it happened I thought, hey, maybe I shouldn’t try to prevent it and let it happen? You know how hard that is?!? To willingly get sick. I couldn’t do it.

The alternative, I think, is to start taking vitamin D and C regularly so my immune system stays at top operating capacity. I also don’t want to do that because I don’t want my body to get used it and become lazy. So I’d prefer to get sick in that regard. Only problem is I believe I am most vulnerable (in my immune-system) when I am super busy and stressed out, which is a terrible time to get sick. Bah!
