As a lupus patient, a bout of flu or common cold can be super serious. I have not had either in years. I do get a sinus infection at least once/year with a seasonal change, and I'm constantly fighting allergies (pet dander, dust, etc.). It's amazing that my system has been able to fend off virus infections.

goodness...hope I haven't jinxed myself!
