2000mg of vitamin C every day, 3000-4000 during fall/winter. Had weird "cold" for two days in January, I felt fucking weird and depleted of energy. Other than that I'm good (except hangovers).

I've been loaded with problems for about 10 days now, everything you have listed plus much more. Haven't had a good night's sleep in about a week.

These viruses and sicknesses going around are getting a lot more resilient and have a wider variety of symptoms. Colds and flu as a kid would be a 3 day thing at most for me.

zero colds except December when I intentionally fucked around with my immune system when the whole house was sick.. I'm at 10-15 grams a day Vit-C depending on carb and stress load

Anybody else use Zicam? It Seems to help. Mainly, When you start to feel sick.

My problem is I never have any around when I start to get sick. You never think about it until its too late But I did just pick up some recently to keep on hand, so next time I start to get sick, we'll see I guess. Also been taking 1000mg of Vit C a day for about the last month now for the hell of it, cuz I haven't really taken any in YEARS. So we'll if that does anything. It was barely hitting 50's and lows in the 30s and rainy last week, and now this week its been almost 80 every day and sunny. Changes in the weather like that always seem to get me. Hopefully this will prevent that.

I heard the Zicam nasal swabs work great too.

I take the big pills. I just let them dissolve in my mouth.

I got sick back in December, a day or two before going on vacation. I sat on the beach in Mexico, miserable for a few days lol.

At least twice a week at work, I wipe down my desk, keyboard, mouse, and phone with Lysol and I keep hand sanitizer at my desk. Offices are disgusting. People aren't smart enough to stay home when they are sick, so I just do my best to wash my hands and keep my work space clean.

I wash my hands often. Can't hurt.

In Florida, we are outside more so we don't have the big groups of people inside who get sick when one person is contagious. I see a lot less flu down here.

I think a lot of cold/flu viruses germs are in the air We breathe. I always see several people at doctors offices wearing those masks.

I always wash my hands too. And keep antibacterial wipes in my car. And I still get sick.

Lysol wipes kill viruses too though.

Nope. I’ve avoided it all this fall/winter so far. Knock on wood. I’m usually good for strep every other year in fucking August.

Yeah...I got it this year too. The first 5 days I was stuck in bed. 6th day my fever broke and felt a little better. I started to realize I would get winded pretty much doing anything. 7th day went to urgent care for the breathing and also tested positive for Influenza B. They did a chest xray for the breathing and my chest was clear. They put me on Tamiflu for 5 days. Finally got back to the office on the 9th day. The next 7 days sucked as I felt like I had no lung capacity, I was tired AF, and had moments of where I could not catch my breath and coughing. This all started Feb 8th and I finally started to feel normal again on Feb 27th. I was never this sick for this long in my life.

I got it in December. Haven't had a flu in 15+ years....and then bam...got my ass handed to me. Throwing up, shitting my brains out, for about 2 days...and took about 5 days to feel normal again.

I did get an email from my kid's school the other day that the flu is going around bad and to keep your kids out of school if they are showing any symptoms.

Haven't had the flu in quite a few years now. Will get random colds, but they are so similar to allergies I barely tell the difference.
