Dear Holly,
Thank you so much for your website….it has been a huge help to me. However, I’m having one problem that I hope you can help with regarding the 2nd P. I have two young children under 2 years old. Over the past few months, we have had many more play dates and my oldest has been around more children. The problem is that she and I are constantly getting sick. She seems to get over her illnesses quite quickly, but they stay with me for at least a week or two. I have not had more than a two week stint of being well since January. Needless to say, this is very taxing on me and our family and I find I can never get on top of my rule as I am constantly getting sick. Everything gets behind and it takes me a week or two just to get back on track. I’m wondering if you have any advice or tips for staying healthy, especially during winter. I know I will get sick some, but the amount of times I have been sick seems unusually high. I am getting decent sleep at night, but I’m wondering if my diet isn’t right or something like that? My pediatrician said this is just to be expected when you have little ones, but I can’t imagine spending every winter like this. I have been to the doctor also and I know I don’t have any auto-immune disorder or anything like that. Any advice would be helpful.
