How often do you catch colds?
« on: October 18, 2017, 09:45:14 pm »
I'm curious how many of you have better immune systems then me lol. On average how many times do you catch the cold a year (leaving flus and stuff out because they're not as common)

My immune system is apparently complete shit because I usually get it 5-6 times a year. Usually once in each season except winter/late fall where it's more like once every two months. I'm really good at washing my hands and stuff yet I still always seem to catch it v.v

Around a few times a year. Mostly happens in Winter or Spring, that's when my "allergies" really kick up.

I don't get sick too often, but when I do, it's really bad.
It's simultaneously a blessing and curse.

Approximately once every other year, but then again, my immune system isn't that good, because in '09-'10 I contracted two different flu strains, a common cold, and strep throat in succession of each other.

Fortunately I have a really strong immune system. I only get sick like 2-3 times a year at most.
But each time it's something really bad like the flu or a very nasty cold.

I don't have a lot of times I remember being sick. I think my immune system is incredible. I think I'd say that I get sick once a year. And anytime I do recall being sick, it was never awful. A decent cold for probably 4-5 days.

A lot. One person can have a cold around me and it's all over for me.
So, maybe 3-5 times a year. Depends.

About once or twice year. I rarely get any kind of actual bad sickness, in fact I hadn’t had one for about four years until I got a fever earlier this year.

Once maybe twice a year, I'm not sure its due to having a good immune system though more so I just don't go out enough. Unfortunately its normally bad when I do get sick XP

not too often but when I do it's absolutely miserable, I get the worst colds tbh x_x

This goes for any sickness really, I haven't had anything more than a cold for years but when I had strep it got pretty bad for a bit.
