There’s something about getting sick that IMMEDIATELY transforms all of us back into helpless eight-year-olds. According to a new survey, 12% of adults say when they get sick, they still CALL THEIR MOM for comfort, advice, or both. 61% of people say they take over-the-counter drugs . . . 44% go to a doctor . . . and 19% just ignore the illness and hope it goes away.  The survey also found the top five things we do to try to avoid getting sick during flu season are: Drinking more fluids . . . taking supplements like vitamin C . . . getting more sleep . . . staying home as much as possible . . . and trying to touch our face, mouth, and nose as little as possible.
