On my travels on the internet recently, I came across an article about how men may have a weaker immune response which is why they're bigger babies when they get sick.
I can't say that's true in this household. I think these days, I get sick more than anyone, certainly more than my husband. And I don't get rid of it fast. When my daughter first started daycare, I came down with every bug known to man. I had to be on antibiotics for something called tracheitis (my trachea hurt).
I do think I have a fairly high pain threshold though, as evidenced by the fact that on multiple occasions, I've voluntarily gotten hairs ripped out of my skin with hot wax. I also stayed at work for about five hours while having labor contractions, so there's that.
