    I just need to rant. Every year from September - May I get a cold Every month. I have gone to several Dr's about this and all they say is my Immune system sucks. I take vitamins, I try to stay away from sick people(hard to do when you work in a store with a pharmacy). I stay warm, I sleep in a different room when DH is sick. I clean my house all the time and even more so after company. Once again I have a really bad cold, I can't breath, swallow, Think...I get fevers, and the aches, and I have to work through this because my 2 days of sick time don't last long when I get these colds.

    I'm sorry I'm just so sick of being sick and nobody around me seem to care anymore. All they say is "again?..Sigh" or "you need to take better care of yourself" Unless I put my self in a bubble I can't take anymore better care. Grrrr

    Thanks for letting me get this off my chest, Now I have room for the cold to sink in there.

    have you tried that dannon stuff you drink it is suppose to be an immune booster maybe it would help.
    I know how you feel being sick all the time. I wish I could just have one day where I didn't feel bad. I would not know how to act if I did. Maybe I would feel like cleaning my house then.

    farmertank, when I was working and getting coughed at by customers, I took Airborne a lot My boss laughed at me, saying that it was "money throwed away. It's all in you head. Just think yourself well and you will be." All in my head or not, it worked for me. An immune system booster as advertised. Good luck to you in finding something to work for you. I know it's miserable to have to work when you don't feel like it.

    I don't know what kind of vitamins you are taking, but if they are OTC and not from an actual health food store (or a chiropractor, some of them are really into nurtition , and they sell vitamins that are so much better and "pure". I take vitamins from a company called Melaleuca, and they are chock full of antioxidants that we are all so desperate for, and their new formula allows us to adsorb much more antioxidants than other vitamins on the market. . .when I worked in the school kitchen, I was sick almost every other month for years, and then every month with a sinus infection, etc., and finally when I quit 6 years ago, I haven't had but one bout with it . . .I think sometimes we are allergic or sensitive to something in our environment, and that is another reason why we are sick with a "cold" so much of the time. Zinc and Vit C are crucial to our well being also, especially the colds, so maybe some extra of that might help you. It stinks having a cold or sinuses all the time, and I really feel for you, because I suffered for years. Good Luck!!!

    I used to get sick every winter and it seemed like I Was sick ALL winter. After I went Vegan the sickness stopped. To be honest I haven't gotten a cold all winter this year, knock on wood. And when I do get sick it doesn't last long.

    I know going vegan is a HUGE step. But you could try drinking and eating less dairy when you are getting sick or are sick, since dairy tend to make you more snotty.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    right there with you. I am currently waiting for a call back from my PCPs office. I have a nasty cough still and now a very PAINFUL sinus infection.

    I did just read today that Vitamin D. Yes D is supposedly the vitamin that one should take to help beat colds and virus's.
    Not C like people have been taking for years. I am picking up a bottle of Vit D pills when I go out later

    Rather then dosing your self full of pills you should just get some good sleep, on a regular basis [​IMG]
