What is the longest amount of time you have gone without getting a cold/virus?

When I worked full time (before I had kids) I was Never sick. I'd go years without a sniffle. Now since my Son started school (preschool 2 years ago) I get sick every other month at least. I'm sick now with a sore throat. Last time was in August. LO & DH are sick too.

Do you get sick a lot?

  • I haven't had a cold in about 1.5 years now. After I yanked my youngest from public school and started homeschooling, I stopped getting sick very often. My oldest is still in traditional school but he has the immune system of an ox, which is the only thing I can contribute to him not bringing home germs to me.

  • I was just thinking about this today, since I feel a scratchy throat coming on again. I never used to get sick, never. But in the last few years, it's an all the time thing. Having kids is hazardous to your health. I wouldn't have it any other way, but I do get tired of colds!

  • No I do not take vitamins. I think we just have strong immune systems.

  • Once over the last 2 summers & RIGHT NOW! This one is kicking my butt! It hit me yesterday, but today is worse. It started w/ a sore throat & runny nose & has advanced to my chest. My head is so clogged it's affecting my hearing & my balance. I'm taking my special vitamin regime & eating chicken noodle soup & drinking OJ, to help it go away faster. Hopefully this will be my last one of the year. Hope you feel better soon!

  • I usually get sick once or twice a year. It's usually a sinus infection or puking.
