It's not rare for me to feel sick around Christmas time. It's strange, I get sick, but, I would always manage to be better by Christmas Eve.

I usually get a runny nose, but, that's about it. I get those in the Summer when I'm by water too.

I don't oddly enough. I don't get sick until summertime. I've only had the flu three times but all three times were during the summer. I get colds and the flu at the dumbest of times.

The worst illnesses I've had were actually in the summer.

People usually get sick in the winter since they are constantly staying inside around other people, which means more chance of spreading viruses/bacteria.

I don't winter has affect on how likely I am to get sick. Since I live with six people I'm in the habit of always washing my hands and I keep my own space/stuff clean. I don't share food with my family either.

Yup. I don't get a ton of them but I will usually get at least one or two in the wintertime, more if it's really cold.

Actually, I don't get that cold.

Maybe it's because I'm either under the covers sleeping, have the heater on, or are wearing some warm clothes I haven't gotten sick in the winter time either.

I usually get me a couple colds each winter. I guess my immunity is finally kicking in because I'm starting not to have them so frequently during the winter. Though I do get sore throats a bit. But they don't develop too much beyond that these days.

No, but I get higher self-esteem. Why? Because I can finally wear pants. It's also the weather where you see me happiest, so if you want a happy Klawed, take me to Alaska. I'll love it. I also get to wear all black more in the colder times of year, sleep better due to having more weight on me, and am just in a better mood. I get much nastier, and maybe meaner when it's hot because my medicine makes me sensitive to heat.

I do if I have no idea what temperature it is and i'm unprepared. But this doesn't happen often. Still, it does happen.

I think the worst cold I had was not in winter, I think just coming out of winter, and my temp was 102 degrees.

septembern : It all depends on where you are geographically… In some places the climate doesn’t have the same effect on some people as it does others. If your use to living in a warm climate and end up traveling to a climate where humidity doesn’t factor in and it gets drastically colder than your use to then you will get sick that is a given. I am a born New Yorker but I have lived in Florida on and off for over 20 years.

When I travel home if it’s not a family emergency and I can fly up at my leisure I like to get up there during the summer months that way if I am going to be up there for an extended period of time which will include a seasonal change in the weather I will have had enough time for my body to acclimate to the climate. One time I flew home in the middle of March and it was 85 degrees down here at the time but I was dressing warm had a heavy coat and a vest on thinking that I would need to be wearing them when I got off the plane because it had been snowing in New York the day before.

My mother was being over protective made me pack the coat and the vest (I was a teenager at the time.) because she was worried that it was too hot at the time. When I got off the plane in New York it was 17 degrees outside with the wind chill bellow zero so needless to say when my uncle picked me up and we went outside to his car I pretty much dove in the back of his mini van going through my bags until I found my coat and my vest. I didn’t get sick thankfully because I didn’t wait till we got to my uncle’s home to go through my bags. If I had waited I probably would have caught at worst the flu.

I do get sick down here pretty much once a year when spring starts because that’s when allergy season is at it’s peak and in Florida it is hell especially with the pollen levels. If you dress accordingly with the weather though you don’t really have too much trouble but allergies are pretty much unavoidable and downright brutal when it becomes a contributing factor in catching a flu or some other type of bug.

Not colds, but I usually have a runny nose and a soar throat very often, during winter and autumn.

@^ Erm... Spam and paste much?

Anyway, no I used to when I little but now I honestly don't even remember the last time I had a cold. I used to get sick like everyday but now I guess my immune system has greatly improved because of that.

I find that during the winter time, I never feel as cold as you think you should during the winter, but I beleive that it's just because I have mentally prepared myself for the cold. I do however feel freezing when outside in simply 7-8 degree weather (42-48 degrees faranheight I think).

It depends on which people I hang out with. I usually don't because I have pretty high immunity system. I only get about 1 each year that last for a day or two.
