Conjunctivitis or Pink Eye

Friday, April 20, 2012

I came down with a mild case, 1 eye of conjunctivitis on Sat before Easter, 4/7. Today I have it again in both eyes. We have been having it at work since, both staff and students seem to be getting it. Some of the problem is that NOT all parents will treat their kids, say they don't have it so we can't get rid of it. There is less custodians, budget cuts, though we are cleaning with clorox wipes, it's not fun.
I also have my first grand child due any day! God knows but it's a pain. I have a lot of sick days and it is tempting to keep away till we go a week without someone getting it. But can't get a drs. note for that. Oh well.
Thank you for reading this. Tomorrow afternoon I won't be contagious and then I will have to wipe my house down. Pray dh doesn't get it again!

    Praying that you are soon rid of it as is everyone in your house and classroom. Sure hope you don't wear contacts. That creates a different host of problems.

    I've had it and it is hard to get rid of. But yes, hand washing is criticial and not touching your nose or eyes. It's a good idea to have hand wipes or a jug of hand sanitizer on your desk and use it often. I think it was on Dr. Oz that they said when you use hand sanitizer or the the wipes, it is only effective for 30 seconds after you use it so every time you touch something, you need to use it again. That can really drive a person crazy!

    Icky, I remember that when my kids were young. I learned to make a very conscious act of never touching my face or eyes and washing my hands nearly as much as someone OCD would. Can't catch it if you don't let the germs past your hands.
