Maybe once a year if I’m lucky.

One or two times a year.  In fact, I have a cold now.  I normally take cold medicine, drink light juices and chicken broth.  I also get tons of rest.  I’m fortunate to be able to work from home, which I did on Thursday, when I started feeling under the weather, and on Friday I just called out.

I get sick about once a year and it’s usually long colds..like 3 weeks to 2 months. I drink a lot of tea, cold medicine and steam the bathroom with eucalyptus to make it more tolerable

When I was a subsitute teacher I was sick all the time. Now that I’m in an office, I’m NEVER sick. I get 5 sick days per year and the worst thing I used them for this year was a migraine.

I usually get a couple of colds a year, not too much more than that.  However, when I worked at a preschool I was sick a lot more – kids are germ buckets!

maybe once a year.. usually not even that though. from natural causes that is. I get sick from drinking past my limit a few times a year. in the past if I ever felt under the weather my dad would just give me those huge vitamin C supplements. my grandma would always make tea with lemon and honey too. she also offered me agua de apio.. she served it hot. but as a child, I was a lot pickier and thought it was gross so I normally turned it down. my dad always used it though and he didn’t get colds often either.

I got maybe 1 cold a year when I worked in an office with other people. We moved to a new city in January and I started to work from home. I had 3 bad colds by October.

When I worked on the ‘front lines’ of a couple of libraries, ie. at the reference desk or doing programming, I was sick about once every six weeks, and often it was pretty bad. Now that I’m the Director and spend very little time at the desk or dealing directly with patrons, I’m suddenly the picture of health. I haven’t been sick at all since July, which is kind of amazing… I’m waiting for a good plague to make its way through my staff, though, and eventually get to me. It’s inevitable.

Can’t remember the last time I was ill, especially stay home ill, so probably 20 years ago or more. I work around kids from March til October and still nothing.
