Scratchy throat starting ... mild headache... a little bit achy ... yikes - I do not want to be sick. Flu, get away from me! NO - I cannot be sick this Christmas season - No sickness allowed! Now if you'll excuse me I need to gobble up tons of vitamin C (ok, just 2 tablets). I know... I know... there's a recent article that came out saying Vitamin C does not prevent us from being sick. I do not care about that article. Vitamin C worked for me before, it should work for me now.
