    So “sick” of getting colds… ha ha!

    I guess that’s why Fritzi was so cross yesterday….
    (Though some say that’s just a myth, about catching cold, from the rain, that is….)

    Yeah, cold is really a virus, which you catch from other people, not rain.

    Only, that virus is in all probability already in your body, just your immune system is too strong for it to do anything. Getting cold and wet weakens your immune system and the virus can get hold of you. So, when talking about the end result, whether it is from rain or virus doesn’t really change anything. :)

    Yes. I saw a story of a man, daughter, and son outside in swimwear in winter playing in the snow and this was 1967. The purpose is a virus that causes the cold not the temp.

    Yes, I was just speaking about the connection between this week’s arc (it seems like it’s going to be an arc, though not necessarily so) and the “ages old debate” about the role of weather in viruses…
    ==
    As you’ve said, cold virus can be in your body, but the antibodies could have already developed immunity… it’s a weird “blessing in disguise”, because of there being so many strains, your body has a chance of developing resistance to so many strains, but like vinyl records, there is that ONE out there that you haven’t gotten, yet…
    ==
    Though there have been studies that show that while it doesn’t CAUSE it (for emphasis only), the colder, wetter weather COULD still be a catalyst, by helping lower your respiratory system/body temp/general transmission rates, along with fatigue and the prevalence of a virus in that season or area…

    The thing is, they’re saying that they still haven’t completely “debunked the myth” yet… we’re God’s creation, still learning much….

    In winter we are in warm rooms/offices in close quarters with other people. Often the rooms are overheated, which helps keep viruses alive longer. Thus more colds.

    There is nothing worse than taking a ‘sick-day’ from work due to actual illness.

    I remember as a chuild being told if I didn’t get a flu shot I might get sick & have to stay home from school for a week & I thought “& the downside of that is … ?”

    Teddy Bear doesn’t care. He’s just glad you’re holding on to him.

    Dunno, here people are in warm rooms/offices in close quarters during summer, too. One gets only 1 month of vacation, after all… and we sleep in the same place both in winter and in summer… Actually I think there are quite some COLDs in summer because sometimes the offices are pretty COLD and people haven’t prepared to that.

    Weird, I thought that ice-hole-dipping is still happening today, too. I do remember that my friends who used to do that rubbed themselves warm after that and drank hot tea…
