neccesary precautions(2 posts)
Okay - I'm in the limbo of pre-diagnosis - bites with no other signs. I want to know what I should be doing regarding protecting my co-workers, friends and family as well as preventing spreading in my own home - within reason - given the lack of definitive diagnosis.
I also want to know how people with children manage this. I have two very young children, work full time and both my husband and I commute. My husband is out of the door early in the morning so I alone dress the kids and myself and pack our various things up for the day. We all get home late.
I can't shower and bathe both children and myself every day before we leave the house. I'm not sure how I would ensure that once washed all of our clothes would be protected until wearing - nor can I imagine not dressing everyone until the very last minute - every minute is the very last minute. Are there strategies for this from experienced moms and dads? What about stuffed animals ? My son has a lovey that he is never without.
Who should I tell about my indefinite situation? What are the non-negotiables?
My husband is still pretty sure that I'm nuts so I'm not expecting a ton of cooperation either...
I have similar concerns. I hope someone has useful tips... its harder with children. cause once you dress them you can't keep them in a bubble. They are gonna sit, crawl, walk, whatever, until you put them in the stroller which might have something in it too so sad so sad!
