    Oh I am BIG on comfort food when I am sick. My favourite is ginger kisses. At 100cal a pop I don’t have them often, but when I am sick I go to town. Like you I’m not seriously sick often (I get mild colds because I work with kids, but only really sick 1-2 times a year) so I just go with it. At the time it makes me feel better!

      I’ve never heard of ginger kisses–are they like the chocolate ones?

    I almost never, ever get sick. Maybe once every couple of years. The last time I was sick was at the end of our Disney trip last winter (booo). It was weird, I had a horrible sore throat – just horrible, but no other symptoms. Probably tonsillitis. I always lose my voice when I get sick, too. I really lose my appetite when I am sick and usually only want liquids or stuff like oatmeal.

      I usually lose my appetite too. Ice cream, soup, etc is all I want!

      Unfortunately, I work with clientele at my job that are unhealthy/homeless/addicts etc so they have all sorts of sickness! It’s hard to avoid. The fact that I only get sick 2x a year is amazing.
