I'm the total opposite. I haven't had a cold or the flu for years. The last bad thing I had was lupus induced pneumonia in 2003. I don't ever catch anything from anyone! I think my immune system is working extremely efficiently now. Not hyper, not suppressed. I'm in a good place! My family calls me Superwoman because I'm the only one who never catches a bug! Weird eh..
I'm more like Ginny in this sense. I rarely catch anything and I work in a doctors office. When I do get something, it lingers for a long time though.
I've watched children for 2 1/2 years. Had them come with fevers,coughs and colds. Never caught anything but this year has been rough on me.
started taking Amitriptyline around the same time I started getting sick, I wonder if the two go hand in hand.
