I usually get about two to three colds a year with several months in between of feeling healthy. This winter though I have been non stop with colds and sinus infections. Since November I've had three colds with lousy coughs. I've been to the doctor and she gives me antibiotics if the cold is not going away after a week to ten days. I just don't want to go back again and give her another $100. I take 3000 mg of Vitamin C everyday to prevent them and Airborne to help when I feel like something is coming on but nothing seems to be helping. Last year Airborne helped me. I know too that my niece (4) and nephew (2) have been getting colds a lot since starting school and I do spend time with them. Do you think I'm catching a lot from them? I am in my upper 40's and you would think I'd be immune to all of this! I never had kids but remember getting sick with colds and flu when I was younger. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks! Also, I need to get out tomorrow and buy groceries and it's freezing! Maybe I should just stay in and wing it with what foods I have available.
