Is it just me?

As my son is getting older *he's going to be 17 months old on the 18th* and I'm getting busier (school and raising him by myself), I find that I'm getting sicker (small colds) more often. Does this hapen to any other mothers as your routine gets more busy?

  • stress gets you sicker all the time... the more stress the less your immune system works....

  • Yep it's the same for me. I just bought a bottle of vitamins the other day, so hopefully that and my orange juice addiction will help.

  • You don't have to be a mom to get run down. It can happen to anyone. Try to eat right, drink lots of water and rest as much as you can.

  • It's not just you, it just part of motherhood stress.
