Did you know?

Just back from the docs with another course of anti-biotics & a wee bit of light at the end of the tunnel. The doctor I saw (who was really lovely & didn't bat an eyelid as I sat there weeping...I love her!) explained what she thinks is happening.   Apparently, it's all a big cycle: You have a bad Winter where you seem to catch everything going, & in doing so, you build up your antibodies. Then you spend the next few years relatively lurgy free. Then you have another bad Winter as your antibodies have depleted & you're less immune to the bugs & viruses doing the rounds. And so on & so on. So it seems as though we're all on antibody collection duties this Winter! Here's to the onset of Spring & 'next few years' lurgy free *cheers*
