Re: 4 colds in a year... uncommon?
I'm certainly having a similarly bad year. Have had 2 bouts with the flu and at least 4 colds since June! The last flu took 2 rounds of antibiotics, 2 types of inhalers and a pill for breathing before it all ended. This is definatley the worst year I've ever had. Gotten so I'm afraid to go anywhere, let alone shake someone's hand. My husband who never catches a cold, let alone the flu, had an incredibly bad flu that turned into one of the worst infections he's ever had.
So, I don't know if 4 colds in a year is uncommon, but I've certainly had my share. I think this has been an unusually bad year for illnesses all around.
