I Am Rarely Ill

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 75 People

    Almost Never

    Back when I hated my job I used to lament the fact that I never came down with anything bad enough to get me off work. I've never been hospitalized in my life. The worst thing I can remember having was a bout with pneumonia 6 years ago.

    Very, Very Rare. Except For Migraines.

    I rarely get sick.  Ever.  Be it a cold, cough, I don't get sick.  The past 2 years the most "severe" illness I've had was a cough and cold that lasted for 2 days.  The only thing I'm allergic to are crabs (I can eat any other kind of seafood). I do...
