I’m not really, but I will admit to being more aware of germs these days.
While updating some of the links in a post I wrote about my own germy quirks, I noticed that one of the best books on the subject (The Germ Freak’s Guide To Outwitting Colds And Flu: Guerrilla Tactics To Keep Yourself Healthy At Home, At Work, And In The World by Allison Janse) is now available for just $4 (including shipping) from a number of online retailers!
That’s a really great deal. Especially since it’s only $.01 for the book itself and $3.99 for the shipping. Keep in mind, these are used books — but who cares for that price?
My advice would simply be to choose the retailer with the highest satisfaction score. I’ve scored some really great deals this way in the past!
Professionally, I pursued my Masters Degree in Family Therapy at Texas Tech — where I obtained invaluable expertise and experience helping people with a wide variety of physical and emotional health issues. Personally, I think it's useful when people realize that they're not the only one going through a difficult time. So any time that I think my personal health experiences would be helpful to someone else going through the same thing, I will share my story here. With health issues that I've personally experienced (like Endometriosis, Lyme Disease, Hysterectomy, Skin Cancer, Ganglion Cysts, Autism, and other topics that very few people enjoy talking about) and health products that I've found beneficial (like sleep aids, essential oils, and medications)… I do my best to provide my own raw and honest firsthand experiences that I think others would appreciate hearing about and (hopefully) find helpful. I'm grateful that I have a number of friends who have also been willing to share their very personal stories here — regarding their own physical and emotional health. When I'm not writing about health topics, you will find me sharing Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
