I've been sicker since I moved to Australia than I was for years in the UK.
Failing eyesight due to shingles. constant eczema due to too much or too little humidity, constant reliance on antihistamines due to hayfever all year round, and for the first time in my life officially diagnosed with serious depression.

Yeah, its a really healthy place to be

Now that is funny. Probably a ring of truth in it actually. If your not happy with your place in the world, those feelings tend to manifest themselves in minor ailments and worse. I get hayfever which sometimes becomes asthma myself here. I reckon I had it undiagnosed in the UK, I certainly had pretty bad symptoms on my last trip back in the month of June.

I can remember having runny noses every winter in the UK.... Never had as regular as clockwork bouts of that here.
