You know the sniffling and sneezing and constant coughing. Drives me nuts. I got my cold on Mother's day of all days. Nice mother's day gift huh?? Well since i have got mine it seems like everyone i have talked too has a cold. AND not just here in Oregon but all over the world. Whats going on? A cold pandemic?? lol Do you have a cold?? Where in the world are you?

I'm from Philippines I don't have a cold, I guest it's up to one's person immune system whether he/she can get a cold, if you get easy affected by cold meaning you have a poor immune system, try to get some exercise, eat a lot of fruits that is rich in vitamin C, and drink the right amount of water everyday,

Naw, thats not it my immune system is fine. if there is a virus around and you are near it you will catch the cold. No matter how good your immune system is. And yes i do all of those things you suggested, i am just old lol Thanks for your response

I dont know if its all over the world cause I know a lot of people from different countries and they are okay. But it could that the virus is anywhere since there a transition of the weather from winter to spring so most probably the changes in temperature will cause colds.

I guess if someone has a cold and gets on a plane and travles to a different city. They just infected everyone on the plan e and even more in the new city so it can be spread world wide that way too.

Hi, mssnow. I live in Sumter, South Carolina. I don't have a cold right now. But, I did get the Flu on Christmas Day. So you are not the only one to feel miserable on a special day. My son was doing a little sneezing and so was my oldest daughter too. I think that it has a lot to do with the weather changing. Most of the time, it is cool in the mornings when we wake up, but hot in the day time. I think that many people are getting sick. It is just a case of germ contagious weather. I hope that you will feel much better as time progresses. Take care.
