Hello everyone. I'm sure there are a hundred threads like this one but there are so many to read through that I figured I would just ask my specific question and get some answers (hopefully).
Over the course of the past 6 months it seems like if I come within 10 feet of anyone who is even suffering the mildidst symptons of an illness (and by illness, I mean anything...flu, cold, congestion, coughing, ANYTHING!) I always get sick. My son comes home from daycare early due to a fever, the next day I have the full-blow stomach virus, My co-workers has the sniffles after the weekend, I spend the next 10 days battling laryngitis and a sever cold.
My question is this: am I suffering from some sort of immune system disease? Is there a way to boost my immunities? I don't want to go to the doctor of I don't have to because my insurance is terrible. Does anyone know why I am getting so sick? If there is a name for a disorder like this, I'd like to know, or if I'm one of millions like this, I'd like to know I'm freaking out over nothing. Thanks
