Did You Get Sick Over the Holidays?

I love the holidays for many reasons, but for many other reasons I am excited for them to finally be over. I can't think of the last time I didn't get sick over the holidays and this past holiday is no exception. From constantly traveling to having a jam-packed schedule, I always find myself a little under the weather at some point. I am finally over a nasty little cold and excited to be able to get back into my regular schedule with working out, but what about you guys . . .

I didn't get sick over the holidays, but I did get sick coming back from a vacation last thursday. I hate airplanes...if I don't end up with migranes from flying, then I get a cold.

I'm a teacher so I think I've encountered enough cold viruses that I don't get sick as much. Let's hope I stay this lucky.

I was SO sick last year for Christmas, the first day we arrived at family's house. This year wasn't as bad but I did have to fight off the sniffles and a sore throat.

I think I was the only one who wasn't sick! I don't know how I managed it either considering I ate like crap all break.

I have had an awful cough for over a week now, but it's my only symptom. No sore throat, no stuffy or runny nose, no fever, nothing. I did, however, pull a muscle in my side from coughing so hard. I can't decide whether or not I should go to the doctor.

I usually do but I think because I quit smoking in Sept. was the reason I didn't.

Usually I do, but I didn't because I got my first flu shot ever! And I took care of myself by exercising and taking my vitamins! Yay! Haha.

I got sick right after New Year's and haven't been able to fully shake whatever this cold type thing is. One day i feel better the next day i feel worse again.

Every year like clockwork it's either Thanksgiving or Christmas; this year it was Christmas! I also tend to get a little sick (mostly allergies though) over spring break depending on how the weather is, which as any college student will tell you sucks something major!

I was so sick, and it sucked! I read somewhere that most people get sick when they are off work because when they ARE working they are stressed out and their body will try it's best to fight everything and put the sickness off because it knows you can't handle it. But once you start relaxing, you're body will take it as an oppurtunity to heal and get better and well you get sick!

I get sick whenever I have time off work. It just works out that wonderfully for me. Ugh. I got a wicked bad cold and bronchitis. So many people around me were sick, I don't even know who to blame for infecting me!
