If you're a college student, then I'm sure that you know by now that it is the prime time for people to get sick.
Usually it's just the cold or a bad sinus infection. However, around the middle of the fall semester, it is becoming more and more common to come down with something, especially a new bug that scientists are still researching.
It is most contagious during the months of November and December and can start as early as Nov. 1. Some people are incredibly susceptible and others are incredibly resistant. Those that have it are often not careful in making sure that they don't spread it to others.
The new sickness is called the COB, or Christmas Obsession Bug.
One of the jobs of a nurse is education and prevention. So, as a nursing school student, it is my job to educate you on the signs and symptoms of the Christmas Obsession Bug.
