Cold and Flu season: Time to Whine

I'll start! I have a cold. My 5 year old gave it to me, but he got over it in 3 days and I still have it. I've taken almost all my old cold meds that still have real pseudoephedrine in them and I'm just hoping that I can still get some more from the pharmacist when it's all gone. Stupid cold is keeping me up at night and I had to buy more tissues.

I'm a mom. The only other person I can whine to is my Mom. I'm done for now, so thanks for listening. And remember, misery loves company so anyone else have a cold?

Gosh, my son has had a cold for over two months now and I took him to the doctor already. They just told me his lungs are fine (has a history of bronchitis) and that he just must keep catching a cold over and over again. I haven't gotten sick this whole time. I think in my case it's been mind over matter type of thing; I keep telling myself that I'm not getting sick, and that I'm immune :) Hey, it's worked!
