    I'm ill most of the year, my immune system has taken a bashing. It'll be brilliant if I'm not ill over Christmas.

      **arm in the air** yep, I'm one of those people who is currently ill in the run up to Xmas. Have been for 7weeks! But gotta agree OP, there seems to be a lot of people (including me) poorly this Xmas. And it sucks big time.

      I'm okay, but trapped in the house with a mum who may or may not have swine flu. My brother buggered off to go clubbing, so I'm taking care of her at the moment. Whilst wearing a biohazard suit, keeping a distance of at least two metres at all times and spraying everything she touches with Dettol.
      But hey, I'm here.

      It's because you guys don't cover up properly. I haven't had the cold in about 2 years.

      would be a perfectly valid point if you could catch a cold from being cold, but unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), you can't get a cold from being cold, or out in the cold.

      but you're right, people these days often don't cover up properly, it makes me feel cold just seeing girls in tiny skirts and low tops and not a lot of clothes, in winter! though this is fairly stereotypical i realise haha.

      i'm ill i have loads of crappy symptoms and the doctors have no idea what's wrong, had 3 blood tests done, now gotta go back for more as soon as I can get back to my Uni town in this snow

      Technically it does help. If you wrap up, with gloves and a scarf. The scarf acts as an epic barrier against germs flying around, and the gloves mean you dont put your fingers in your mouth when germs are on them.

      i was quite ill 2 weeks ago and spent the week tucked up in bed in lots of layers and a hot water bottle, which was annoying but i should hopefully be ok for christmas since iv just been ill. my mum has been ill for first half of this week with a chest infection that i was lucky enough to avoid catching, as i seem to catch everything around. she's had to be off work for 2 days because of it - she teaches reception class and when she called in sick there were 52 kids off on the monday and 59 kids off on the tuesday - 12 of which were in her reception class, so know what you mean about everyone seeming to get ill, especially as a couple of my friends have also said theyre not well either.

      i have had a few sneezes and a bit of a runny nose but that was from being out in the cold for a bit on sunday and monday but its not been too bad so i should hopefully be ok.

      I've been really ill since last weekend and have basically been asleep the whole time. Just got rid of a cold and the boyfriend gives me the flu, followed by laryngitis and now I have conjunctivitis, lavely.
