    Usually, I dun get it for more than a year or so.

    Now, this time, just got it like 6months ago and now got it again. Maybe, too much work, too many late nights and too little exercise la.

    So, now, got to drink lots of water, and lots of rest.

    just did 14 hours in bed...and had a couple of spin trips.....quite fun......but the sun called and had to drag the beaten body up and go for a walk.....as deswitch says - walking in the sun is good and the bad head feels better.

    me maver has given me a cough mixture called "lohankuo" which tastes nice and seems to have soothed the thumping throat....as well as have gargled with listerine (me maver does vinegar and salt) to kill the microbes.....

    now drinking cups of teaspoon of turmeric (natural antibiotic) with honey (again me maver's remedy) plus just made meself some nice chicken broth......

    gonna go back under me blankets as can't seem to get warm......heehee.....this is fun.....I'm human!

    folks.

    remember this..

    common cold/influenza, two illnesses caused by different viruses. symptoms are similar but in influenza, more prominent fever and exhaustion may be exhibited.

    antibiotics prescribed to you will be for prophylactic purposes, that is as a form of prevention of any secondary infection that may arise from the virus attack (or maybe even the worsening of the original symptoms experienced).

    so don't for a moment think cold/flu, therefore antibiotics. doesn't work that way, and it's a very bad mindset to adapt (since it does lead to antibiotics abuse, which in the medical world is a very very VERY serious issue since the discovery of viruses resistant to antibiotics, such as MRSA).



    hence, and again, rest rest rest and hydration. okay folks?

    there are many many many variables when it comes to viruses and its attack on the immune system. lack of immunity is one of the main reasons, and that in itself can also be attributed to many other reasons such as stress, previous illness, lack of sleep, diminished bodily functions due to other physiological/psychological factors.

    as for viruses. they are constantly mutating and thus, even though you may be immune to a previous strain of virus that caused influenza, you may still fall ill due to the newly mutated virus attacking your system instead.
