    FLUIDS.
    They come in the form of water, tea, fruit juice, etc.
    VITAMIN C.
    It comes in the form of tabs, pickled vegetables, and citrus fruits.
    HIT TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE.
    Drink Orange Juice.
    Although, OJ kills, so I just drink lots of TEA.
    Because it's delicious.

    Well, let's see.....I drink lots of soda (Mountain Dew mostly), beer and iced tea.....I eat whatever I think tastes good, NOT what is good for me. Actually, I tend to avoid food that is GOOD for me....ain't got time for food that tastes like crap.

    I haven't had a cold that has lasted more than 12 hours in nearly 20 years. Truth. So I can honestly say, I don't know what you poor schmucks that get sick all the time should take to avoid your ailments.


    I do have a trade-off though.....I used to have skin problems and get hives a lot (something about my histamines being overactive, according to dermatologists), but now I take Claritin for that and haven't had skin problems ever since I discovered the magical properties that little pill. Truth. I was driven to near insanity with itchy skin ever since I was 4 years old until I started taking that little bastard. I only discovered it a few years ago.

    So, I'm god-like when it comes to colds and stuff like that. I just NEVER get sick. I'm not even kidding. The overactive histamines in my body kill the germs before I ever have any symptoms, most times.

    It sucks really.....never being sick......I never have an excuse to call off from work. [​IMG]
