    I'm not the best person to ask. But, I won't let that stop me from answering...

    Right now I've got shingles for the 3rd year running. Woohoo! My family doctor gave me a full prescription of anti-virals so I can get started on them right away just in case. The last 2 times I got sick in November so I was congratulating myself on New Year's that I got through the year. Then it broke out on my birthday. Isn't that awesome? Anyhow, I'm doing OK, last day of anti-virals is tomorrow. And I went ahead with a minor procedure on Thursday. 2 large moles in a very bad spot. I'll give you a hint, I'm sitting on the stitches right now. Ewwwwwww. I'm not getting much done this weekend. Pretty dang boring.

    In terms of colds and flu's I'm actually pretty good. I don't get them often.

    Hang in there man!

    Oh, did you see that article about how the "man cold" or "man flu" is actually a thing?

    Wow, I am sorry. I have to Google the man cold thing...
    Have you watched any documentaries which touch on the food and health connection?
    Gerson Miracle, Food Matters, Dying to have known, Knives over forks?

    Get well.

    Last time I got sick was the last time I got sick. I don't count hangovers, because that's just a consequence of actions.

    Thanks Backagain, I have chronic auto-immune issues. But, yeah, I'm all over the health stuff. I do some weird stuff over here, trust me. 2015 was actually a really good year for me health wise.

    Winter, I had a cold in like February. Usually the cause is from being in a public play area with my boy, or from flying. I have not had the flu in over 5 years.

    Definitely been hungover much worse than any virus as of late. Last May, I went fishing in a remote area in Canada and power drank for 7 straight days. All was good till the last day my body shut down causing several heaving stops on the wilderness logging roads. The Drive from Ontario, Canada to Nebraska was the longest 12 hour ride of my life.

    Me too. I'll probably have a cough hanging around for awhile still. Significant colds do this to me. Didn't stop me from going to Hammond to gamble and consume craft beer yesterday. :eek:

    I usually get a bad cold once or twice a year

    The last time I had the full blown flu was 2008

    Tuesday before my last trip... strep throat. It was enough to limit my drinking but I got better quickly.

    That Tuesday with the 103 fever..screw that...I have never been so miserable

    I feel like going fishing too but I have to catch up on all the stuff I didn't do because I was wallowing in misery. Not too many weekends left before the tax refunds hit. I try to avoid the boats then.

    The common cold....last year. Usually once a year. I hate the sore throat stage!!!

    The flu...10+ years...I can't even remember the last time I had one. I thought it was just an excuse to miss school/work....LOL.
