I have had psoriasis for maybe the last 4-5 years or so, and I can only remember getting sick maybe 2 times during this period, and both were very minor colds. I have not been sick for almost 2 years now(knock on wood). While I was always pretty healthy growing up, I would usually get sick at least once or twice a year, but I honestly cannot remember the last time I got sick. Could my over-active immune system that is causing the psoriasis be responsible for me also never seemingly being sick? It is really strange because I am around people that are sick quite a bit at work, and also my wife has gotten sick at least 4-5 times in the past year(she is an elementary school teacher---a virtual breeding ground for sickness), but not one time did I even get so much as a sore throat. I never really thought anything of it until someone remarked at work that I was the only one who hadnt caught a cold that spread thru the other 4 people and that I never seemed to get sick. I then started thinking about how I used to get sick growing up more frequently than I have recently.
Has anyone else seen something similar happen to them? Maybe its just in my imagination, but I have been around quite a few sick people and have not gotten sick myself, but maybe it has just been my good fortune....
