So I've been sick multiple times, constituting 50% of the 4 months I've been here now. Having come from Florida, a completely different climate, is this normal? Or perhaps I lack the constitution for living in New England?

Check for mold in your place.

No, it isn't normal, unless you're working with kids.

Common cold as near as I can tell.

I've lived 3 different places in 4 months, so I doubt much it's mold.

Maybe it is a weakened immune system from moving to different places so often.

There very well could be some different bugs up here, given the different temperature and humidity levels. My guess is that next year (or maybe the year after) you'll be back to the way you were before.

I sincerely hope so. It sure cripples progress integrating into a new community, to say nothing of dating!

could it be allergies? I moved here from Hawaii and I've been fine. The fluctuation in weather temperature also catches a lot of people in Boston. Gotta layer up.

I've had 3-4 bouts of the flu this year and they seem to be tied to travel, whether personal or interfacing with clients who have traveled. The trend became bad enough that my employer paid to have the facility thoroughly sanitized.

I suspect it was simply a bad year for transmission, which is exacerbated by Boston functioning as an international hub.
