I call it the "comeback cold," It seems to be viral or antibiotic resistant. People feel sick for three days or so, then they adjust and start to
feel better. Then it comes back on them twofold in a day or two. It starts with a sickly feeling, followed by headache and severe body aches, then
total full fledged flu symptoms. No antibiotic can touch it, thus it is seemingly antibiotic resistant, or viral. Our widespread use of antibiotic
producs is slowly making stronger strains of bacteria. Other symptoms or illnesses produced by this sickness are: Laryngitis, strep throat,
pneumonia, chest colds, migranes, severe cough, and chills/fever.
I've heard that there are strains of meningitis that have mutated and begin to affect the nerve centers of the body. This is characterized by severe
body aches and nerve pain. I have also heard that it is viral.
I have never taken an antibiotic or used anti bacterial products in my household, or at work. I also never get a flu shot. Interestingly enough I was
the only one at my office not to get sick. I'm not saying that that is the reason that I didn't get sick. Illness had too many variables to
pinpint the perpensity of an illness to be contageous. Illness is also perpetuated by stress, anxiety, worry, fear, and depression. Diet,
cigarettes, grooming/bathing habits, use of household chemicals, and sleep patterns also determine the chances of illness.
