I must have the worst constitution ever. If I were a D&D character, my constitution would be a 4. Or something equally pathetic. I have to roll a 20 to avoid getting sick.

I am always getting sick. And then it becomes the bubonic plague every single time, laying me low for literal weeks as I live with pounding head, lightheadedness, sniffles, cough and lack of sleep due to coughing all night.

Gah! So annoyed!

Maybe it has something to do with not being breastfed. My girlfriend was breastfed until the age of two (or something, she was old enough to demand "BOOBIE!" when hungry, anyway) and she has a disgustingly robust immune system. She gets a cold and she feels a little phlemmy. I get the same cold and I want to sleep for two weeks and use boxes and boxes of tissues.

I'm getting some no-chicken noodle soup at whole foods tonight, damn it.

I'm not annoyed at my girlfriend, mind you. Just my own substandard immune system. Besides being totally jealous.

Nope, doubt that it's breastfeeding. I mean, I get sick, but I don't get terribly sick. I used to get sick like none other, a very frail child, but my immune system has hardened. Practically nothing really gets to me anymore. And I wasn't breastfed, it was all bottle. XD

Well, that means there's hope for me, right? Maybe I just let it get me down.

Exactly! Well, if you're used to letting it get you down like that, you're just... expecting it. I mean, it's not even a question anymore. It's a guarantee- you're going to be miserable. And you convince yourself of it. And you try to find reasons to back up the twisted logic.

Not true, though! I doubt there's a genetic predisposition to misery during sickness. XD

Quite likely. I am well known for talking myself into things. With no need for logic, twisted or otherwise. ;)

it's cause you suck ;-)
I don't even know when I get sick anymore, it really has to knock me on my ass. I'm about ready to curl up and die at the moment - I'm sick of allergies. Yes, allergies are my nemesis.

Feel better.

Allergies sound awful. You feel better, too!
