Do you fear getting sick?

Sometimes does it cross your mind that this and that could happen to you? I think it's so hard when these kind of thoughts cross the mind because we are fine and okay so being afraid about something that might never happen is suffering twice.

Hi katie: I won't say fear but of course I care too much about my health and I try to healthy. My health problem are a main subject for me because we just have a life and we should value this important gift. ALVARO

No, I never fear getting sick at all. I know that I eat pretty well and keep a good level of fitness, so my body is usually fairly strong and resistant to these things. I have not had even the slightest cold, headache or anything for about 5 years so I just do not accept that these things will enter my life again. I choose to NOT get sick, so I have no reason to fear it.

I have a health condition and it makes me worries much but now slowly I am coping and finds ways to lessen the fears and worries. I just live my life in moderation and stay away from things that would get me sick.

Oh yes, I fear of falling sick because there are so many people who would be affected like my children and my husband. But to be fearing all the time will be like you say suffering twice so I just don't think too much about it.

Yes, I fear to get sick. I always tell myself to be positive to life but it didn't work out when I was sick. I felt lonely, helpless and grievance, couldn't work or eat as usual.

eventhough i am not a microbiologist and ignorant to some things, yes I have a tendancy to pray to God not to catch the virus and flu that goes around. I :) just pray and eat whole foods. Sometimes whole foods builds immunity and keeps you healthier than so much antibacterial stuff. Fresh fruits, veggies, water and juices will keep you free of getting sick to a certain degree, but bleach is also a great germ killer that anyone can afford in their home. Brushing your teeth can also keep you free of getting sick and using a toothbrush case keeps your toothbrush cleaner than exposing it.

Well,yes I do mostly because I am a mother and grandmother and my husband had a disease that had some complications that could have been contagious.But,luckily I did not catch any of it. My daughter has already lost one parent,she doesn't need to lose the only one she has left.
