    ***OFFICIAL SICK OF BEING SICK THREAD***

    This winter been rough on anyone else here? I've been sick about 5 times this winter, and have had enough. Very frustrating.

    I'm with ya there...spent a week home with walking pneumonia, then took about two more weeks to get my energy levels back to normal. I'm ready for warmth and fresh air again...

    I was sick for about 70% of January. Had a cold and got another one right after it.

    The evening of December 26th, I woke up from sleep with my nose running to where I could saturate 20 tissues, and it still didn't seem like I made a dent. Since then, my nose/sinuses haven't been quite right. Never a cold, just not at optimum working order.

    I think the problem is how dry it's been this winter. Way more head colds and sinus issues than I've ever had before.

    People with young kids should be forced to wear respirator masks in public. It seems like they are the source of most widespread contagion.

    Thanks for evening out the average for me Craig, I've been pretty good all winter (pause as I go punch some exposed wood for a half hour)

    And I've got a 4 year old and a 13 month old.

    had something nasty a couple weeks ago, must have caught it from a coworker - she was out for three days with it. I feel lucky that I was only out for a day and feeling awful for most of a 2nd but still able to work!

    Airbag's got a point......we run a humidifier in our apartment. Dry sinuses get irritated and allow germs in more easily.

    I think increased colds & other viruses are not so much a product of the cold weather, but the continuously recycled air we breathe in our homes, classrooms & offices. Although I have hayfever issues and pollen is my nemesis, I love being able to throw my windows open in the spring and inhale FRESH air. :)

    First winter I have been sick in a decade. Also I just had a kid who started day care this past fall... Coincidence? I think not. Had walking pneumonia in January it sucked.
