    So often?
    It's been years since I had a cold, but whatever.

    I have at least three to four colds and one flu minimum a year.

    Eat better, have yourself vaccinated every year and have multivitamin supplements.

    Multivitamins are overrated. Eating better/healthier means your body gets all the nutrients it needs from real food. But supplements are good for lazy people -- like me :)

    Haha, you think you're lazy? I'm the king of all that's lazy.

    And I grew up taking multivitamins, why I stopped in my adulthood I don't know.

    They are not overrated. They work. If they didn't work they would be overrated.

    It's been several days (a couple of weeks?) since I last had them. I was ill and didn't want to have any weird combination in me.
    I had my "first" capsule earlier this morning. (it's a bit after noon right now).
    I completely forgot I had it as I am playing a game (WoT) for a couple of hours since then. I wasn't thinking about it, etc. As I was playing, and not playing that great if I may say so, I found myself making jokes (about the game) and feeling overall pretty damn good. I then remembered I had a capsule earlier.
    As I am typing this I am smiling.
    Yeah, this thing works for me just fine.

    I drink an Orange Juice every morning, and I take a Multivitamin for Men every single day. I've never had a flu shot and never intend to do so.
    I do have seasonal allergies and am probably a bit allergic to the four cats we have here. It's been quite some time since I had a fever. However, I did just come off some head congestion...which is most likely due to some extreme weather changes we've had here and my allergies related to that.

    Hmm, it looks like I lost 4 kilos in about a week.
    Interesting.
    I am not only having the supplements, I am also going on a low carb "diet".

    I've lost 7 kilos in two weeks from a very low carb diet. It really does work.

    FTR, I just quit a job at Pizza Hut where, this coming April, I first started in 2004. In the nearly 13 years since, I don't recall having ever called out sick. I've had to take off for other reasons...car broke down - which, when possible, I would rent one to use - or just routine appointments that needed to be kept. I've never had a flu or pneumonia vaccine, either. I simply do what I stated above and try to eat healthy food...and get enough rest. Many people guess my age at being 10-15 years younger than my actual age.
