      No. I’ve been lucky so far and have never had any serious illnesses.

      Yes – a cold! We can treat the symptoms of a cold, but not cure the infection. I think that, unless you are some kind of superhuman, you (and the other scientists) have had this illness, too!

      It doesn’t really go into the definition of illness and it’s not compromising my life, but I’m “cursed” with very frequent mouth ulcers, whose origins are still unknown, but that are probably stress-related 🙁
