Today, someone I hadn't seen for awhile, though we'd been emailing, asked me how I was, I said fine. She said something along the lines of "Well, you were sick . . ." and I said, "Not so much sick, sick, but this MRSA infection has been bugging me off and on. . . " she backs away from me! I said "It's not contagious," she said "Oh no, it is," and told me a story about her mother having it, in the hospital, and how she had to be isolated.
Well, that made me feel better!
