This happens to me every year. Don't ask me why, but every August when everyone is out enjoying the last month of summer I get a terrible cold! I don't think I have any control over it, the cold just comes on sometime in August and I have to stay in bed for a week. Achy, fever, cold sweats, congested, the whole deal.
I've tried everything to prevent it from happening, vitamins, exercise, you name it, I've tried it. I looked it up on weather.com and it looks like 43 out of 100 people are also feeling under the weather in the Boston area right now, who knew?
Just know if you're sick at this time of year, you're not alone.
