I'm OK

I might not even know if I came down with the "piggy flu",,,it might take me for ever to get over colds, but the flu barely makes me sick at all, and rarely makes me throw up more than once.

Piggy flu and colds

Let me give youall a little advice from a long sufferer of colds that used to start in November and last till April. I started to take 1000mg Vitamen C tablet every morning. It must be 5-6 years since I have had a cold of flu attack. Coincidence? Maybe yes, maybe no.
By the way Larry, if you do get a cold you can always try my old Dad's remedy. 1 Bottle of Scotch Whiskey, after that you won't even know you have a cold. You wont feel a thing.
