It made me wonder..."how did I catch it?"

If you normally listen to the HOM Morning Show, you may have noticed that I was absent from the airwaves for virtually all of last week. It was because I was terribly sick with a high fever, body aches, and major fatigue.

I tried to be a tough guy and avoid seeing my doctor right away. But when day four came and there was no sign of relief, I knew I had to go in.

They did a few different tests, as well as a chest x-ray, and diagnosed me with pneumonia. I believe this was the first time I had ever had it. It was the absolute worst. Now I understand why people with it sometimes end up in the hospital.

It really got me to thinking...how did I get it? I'm generally a healthy person - I eat right (for the most part) and get regular exercise. I would even say that I'm more careful than most when it comes to touching things in public places. Regardless, I caught it, and had to deal with it.

What do you do to keep from getting sick?
