[Poll] Pathos  
In this house, we have been sick so often, for so long, that I have actually grown weary of writing the words "I am sick." We are personally responsible for a worldwide tissue shortage and have cornered the market on throat lozenges and self-pity.

But I notice I'm not alone. My friends list appears to be unusually unwell, too. (Not my fault, guys. You can't catch these viruses via the internets.) So. A poll. To entertain us all as we sneeze and reach for the antipyretics.

I attribute my good health to minimal contact with children, work that does not require prolonged close-quarters contact with others, the immune-boosting properties of regular massage, and hand washing.

My annual average for viral infections is 1, and I've not hit my average yet this season. When I do have a cold, my favorite remedies are spicy food (hot and sour soup works especially well) and Mucinex. My body doesn't like decongestants, and I'll only take a cough suppressant if I'm coughing so violently that I can't sleep.
