Hi Deb,

I'm sorry you're not feeling well.

Next time your coworkers start bringing their crud to the office, you might try Airborne. It's a formulation of herbs and vitamins, etc. that's reputed to stave off colds and flu. I have found it at CVS in the cold/flu rememdy section on the bottom shelf. I didn't see anything on the ingredient list that looked like soy derivative, but you should probably check with manufacturer first.

Normally I don't believe in stuff like that, but I took some before going over to my employer's house one night. It's a plague house. They have 2 small children and the entire family is always sick with something. Every time in the past I've been over there I've gotten sick, but I didn't get sick the time I took Airborne, despite the fact my boss was sick that night and those 2 sticky children were running around with cough.

I hope you feel better soon.
