I hardly ever get ill and everytime I do it's because someone living in the house has got it first and passed it to me, happened about 50 times now so annoying :mad: :mad: :mad:

Im usually the infectious one in our house. I will get something of someone from work, such as a bad cold (still work through it), but then i come home and pass it on to my sisters, mum, or dad lol :D

They usually get it worse then me though - im immune :eek:

At least you know you're human ;) As soon as you start catching stuff off the dog is the time to worry.

Just eat lots of fruit and veg, get plenty of sleep, go easy on the booze and whatever you do don't smoke as all the nasty nasty chemicals stuff your immune system

i find abstinence from the internet for a minimum of 2 weeks gives immediate relief

I mainly get ill from work, more often then not its from customers. I tend to shift those ones quite sharp. Its when I get stranded or made to wait in the cold that I go all funny and my nose runs for 3 weeks.

Not bad enough to call in sick, but bad enough to take sexy back (n)

so in summary, people catch diseases from other people, and those other people just so happen to be the people they have the most contact with.

the virus is constantly mutating, and your immumity takes some time to become effective, plus your immune system is weak after the first infection, so it is not that unusual to catch the same virus twice. assuming there is a length of time (a few weeks) between the first infection and the second exposure, and assuming the virus has not suffered any significant change in that time, then your body's antibodies will be able to deal with it and you will not be reinfected.

Haha, you are right I do seem to get ill about 2-3 times a year and I think it would have been 0-1 seen as someone in the house had the virus first always. :bang:
