I’ll start.About a month ago l had a cold,nothing bad and felt like l got over it.Went to Daytona and was fine.Coming home,l was horse and had a runny nose.Another week goes by and l don’t feel great,but ok.Then boom,Saturday comes and l go down hill and continued feeling awful.Took a 4 hour nap on Tuesday afternoon,that never happens.Thats when my wife started getting sick.She has had it rough (long time smoker),had one of her ear drums puncher and bleeding.Thats when l took her to a First Assist clinic for antibiotics and drops for her ear.She too now seems to be on the mend.
Mine seems like it’s almost gone today,still a lot of congestion.

Just got over the Daytona Crud, think it was from going from cold to warm and within 12 hours, back to freezing. Plus Pollen was dropping in Daytona did not help any.

I haven't been sick, but I have a lot of weird stuff going on physically lately. Minor muscle pulls that never seem to go away (hamstring). My knuckles on both hands hurt 24/7 but not horribly painful, I've got this pain on the inside of my right elbow (doctors is calling it insert or insertion or something) that is very painful and keeps me up at night. Stubbed my toe two months ago and it still hurts and isn't fully healed yet. It's like I am not healing or recuperating from even the slightest injury anymore. Blood work ruled out a bunch of bad stuff, but I'm still a hurting unit 24/7. Seeing an orthopedist tomorrow for the elbow deal, because that's what causes me the most pain right now. I know I'm getting up there in age, but I keep myself in pretty good shape, but it ain't paying off at the moment.

I haven't gotten sick yet but everyone around me at work has been fighting a Flu. We've nicknamed it the "Van Dora Virus" after a co-worker. :)
I've been sleeping 10-12 hours a night for the past week so I figure I'm fighting it off in my sleep.

I've had the last 4 days off to rest up before a very hectic 2 week push through a project outage and everyone is betting that I get it on Thursday night right before I take power off our entire facility for 48 hours of Electrical upgrades. I do have backup coverage if I need it but that would suck greatly for me.

I got rocked by the flu Friday before Daytona and was laid up the entire weekend missing the event. I am just now getting close to feeling 100%.

Day after Christmas I left work early due to a runny nose and eyes watering out of nowhere, spent 3 days on the couch with a fever, coughing out nasty-ness. Real bad upper respiratory infection of some sort that I do not wish upon anyone.
