Vitamins and Supplements

My throat hurts today so I'm worried I'm getting a cold for the second time in two weeks, but before this, I hadn't been sick in a year. I've been trying to figure out how I went so long without getting sick, if I'm always so rarely sick, or if I just noticed it for the first time this year. But I think I usually get sick more often because now that I am sick, I'm being a total pansy and having strong feelings that I never want to be sick again when usually I buck it up and get on with life. (Maybe this explains why Michael is such a baby when he's sick.)

I read a blog post about cod liver oil today that actually made me want to start taking it. I've never been a big believer in supplements, but a friend recently mentioned that vitamin D does wonders for your energy level, so i thought I'd start taking it this winter since i tend to not want to get out of bed until spring. The cod liver oil is supposed to be packed with vitamin D and help prevent sickness, so maybe i should take that. Or maybe I should just do a better job of washing my hands before I eat and not touching things in public places.

As a stay at home mom, it is really inconvenient to be sick.

Anyway, just some random thoughts. Anyone try cod liver oil, vitamin D, or any other supplements? Or should I go with the germophobe route?


  1. This is Stephan. I think all you need is a good multi-vitamin. You shouldn't go overboard on just one thing or another. (plus, you should still wash your hands more frequently... there's a lot of nasty little creepies out in the community nowadays.)
