    I'm sorry you are going through this! I think this has been a very rough winter weather-wise and sickness-wise in a lot of places.

    I am one of a subset of us FMers who almost never get sick with anything else. I haven't had the flu in more than a decade, and I can't remember the last time I caught a cold. Others in my household get them, but I never catch it from them. Somebody once posted here about why that happens----the medical reason why some of us get sick a lot, and some of us never do, but I can't remember much about what I read!

    It does seem like there's not a lot of middle ground-----we are either prone to catch everything, or seldom catch even a mild cold.

    Anyway, I know I'm no help, but I feel for you & hope you can throw this string of illness off soon! Rest & plenty of water (I know, that's what Mom says...)

    Feel better soon!

    Hugs,
    Pam
