As a little girl, I had one sore throat and cold, after another. I missed a lot of school. Looking back, I'm sure it was untreated allergies. When I was about 13, I finally went to an allergy doctor. After testing, they discovered that my ragweed, dust, and mold scores (among others) were off the charts. They treated me for a few years with shots and medication, and I have been virtually cold-free ever since.
A couple of days ago, I started sneezing really bad. The next day I woke up with a full-blown cold, and now I have a cold and cough.
I literally don't remember the last time I've been sick like this. I wonder if getting off the program lowered my immune system defenses. Maybe this is my body's way of ridding itself of the remaining methadone. Whatever it is, I wish it would go away. I hate feeling like this.
