It seems that if someone has a cold or sore throat I'm likely to catch it. It's kind of annoying to wake up to a sore throat. It really throws off my intentions of being social, especially with people I may want to get closer to. Now I have a reason to keep my distance. Normally I may be thinking "Should I try anything? ... No, they may not want to.", but then a cold enters the picture and instead it's "I better keep my distance or they may get whatever I have, and then they'll resent me." Of course that probably just gives the impression I'm not interested. Oh yay, I just can't go right with that one. If I were to reschedule for after I've fully recovered I wouldn't be going anywhere for around two weeks. And then there is the somewhat awkward conversation "I think I woke up with a cold this morning. Do you want to reschedule some time next month?" Yes, it usually takes that long to get get completely over a simple cold (no lingering symptoms whatsoever). :-/ Sucks to be me sometimes. And the last two I actually went to the doctor for (a week into symptoms with minimal signs of recovery) and was given some anti-biotics.

Alright, enough whining. Time to get ready for the day and see if any of the half-dozen home remedies people have told me to do before will do anything to alleviate the symptoms this time.

If the roles were reversed and the other person had the cold I would probably go ahead with hanging out anyway. I'd like for them to inform me ahead of time but it wouldn't stop me from hanging out. Common, non-lethal, curable diseases don't bother me that much. *shrug*
