Do I just have a cold and is my house mate to blame?

Hi all

For the last month and a half, I've had been having a cold on and off.
Had about 3 now.

Last night and today it feels like I've been hit by a bus.
Bad headache, Running nose, Sore throat, Cough, Lack of sleep.
Eyes hurting, Chills and Aching muscles.

As I've been having it on and off, is it a cold or something else?

Also... my house mate who I also work with... around this time of the year, he develops a really bad cough.

He has no hygine... if he coughs, most of the time it's with an open mouth and when he does cover his mouth, he never washes his hands before touching things (unless I bring it up) and I always make sure to rewash cups and plates that he's washed before I use them.

Working with him means I travel in his car and have to work close to him while he coughs etc.

He says I'm over the top and I got OCD but this time last year when he had his cough, I got ill.

Coincidence or just the time of the year?
