Okay, I've been dealing with a bad cold for about a week and it aint easy when you are working a call center gig. It seems like everyone here is coughing or sneezing nearly all of the other BRACcies at my mothers job have been out with sickness or have been more sick than usual. My mother even told me this week that her doctor at Ft. Knox told her that Kentucky would not be a good place for her since she suffers from a condition which causes pretty bad sinus infection which is apparently aggravated by bad air particles. Everyone at work has told me that Kentucky is horrible for folks with allergies or other sinus conditions. So pretty much, I'm sick and mom is sick of being sick and in process of trying to move back to either VA or MD.

Anyone else here sick? Is it normal to have many folk around you sick?

I'm not sick right now, but I have horrible allergies which usually turns into several sinus infections every year. When I lived out of state, I didn't have anywhere near as many problems but its been horrible since I moved back here. I'm actually going to the doctor next month to see if I can start taking allergy shots or something because Zyrtec/Allegra/Clariten just isn't cutting it.

Lots of folks suffer from allergies when they move to the state of KY. We're in a valley and prone to getting allergies due to the pollen and weeds we have. If you've never had them, you've most likely have them.

I'm a Braccie too, I started feeling a downturn in my health about 3 or 4 weeks ago. I don't get too many colds, or sinus infections or classic allergy symptoms. I just get really sleepy and fatigued with a heavy head kinda feeling. Also my food intolerances start acting up. Regular intake of vitamin C and probiotics will help with cold prevention. Also try a strong antioxidant type multivitamin.The good stuff not one-a-day/centrum. We probably will all start feeling better sometime in May.
