I can't believe I'm actually happy about this as I hate getting sick and having a cold.

But, since coming down with lyme & co in late 2009 I really haven't had a cold at all. This is even with having 2 small children in daycare who always seem to have a cold during winter. My wife would get them constantly for the past 2 years. My kids would get them constantly. But I wouldn't get anything. Or if I did get something, it was just a mild sniffle for a day or two.

Well...last night the post-nasal sore throat / runny nose started. Today...throat is very sore in the classic cold sense. Nose is runny and I'm sneezing.

It isn't terrible, but is a bit of a nuisance.

Still...I'm actually a bit thankful that I have a cold as I believe this means my immune system could be starting to work again.

Yes...I am treating it as good news, even though I don't feel good today (due to cold symptoms, not due to lyme & co.)

Wait is this really a good sign??? I got a cold too now, well a sore thoart that led into a runny nose then a sinus infection for the first time in 2 1/2 years since being diagnosed in 2009 and pretty much being on abx most of the time.

I know my CD 57 levels are still low, but does the cold mean my immune system is really starting to kick back into normal?

go to ER, great place to catch something..
I to have had a sorethroat/cold symptoms as friends are all sick and after they visited me,
i hear "Oh, Yeah I am sick with a cold" Thanks.
little fever, like 12 hrs..
I can't believe that getting sicker is better.?
Telling people that I am taking meds that make me sicker dosn't set well with them...
